Removal of template

Why did you remove the {{GPS EXIF}} template? What exactly is missing? The output of en:Exiftool looks complete:

GPS Latitude                    : 59 deg 22' 15.37"
GPS Longitude                   : 18 deg 7' 58.70"
GPS Altitude                    : 0.028 m
GPS Position                    : 59 deg 22' 15.37", 18 deg 7' 58.70"

Stefan4 (talk) 20:52, 19 August 2012 (UTC)

What about "GPSLatitudeRef" and "GPSLongitudeRef"? Is the object located on northern or southern hemisphere? Eastern or western? It's quite easy task for a human but not for a bot. That's why the bot hasn't been able to process the image since 18 of June. And that's why I have removed {{GPS EXIF}} template - because GPS data is incomplete. Jdx (talk) 22:05, 19 August 2012 (UTC)

Wouldn't the GPS tags just use ± to indicate N/S/E/W? --Stefan4 (talk) 22:12, 19 August 2012 (UTC)
I'm far from being geotagging/EXIF guru but I think that you must use the tags that I mentioned earlier. Look here: Jdx (talk) 22:31, 19 August 2012 (UTC)
OK, so I've edited the file using Exiftool. Let's see what happens now. --Stefan4 (talk) 22:39, 19 August 2012 (UTC)
It seems that it still doesn't work. Perhaps you have to add also other tags, eg. "GPSVersionID". Anyway, unless you want to study geotagging/EXIF internals I suggest using Geosetter or similar software. Or insert {{Location}} template manually. Jdx (talk) 11:36, 21 August 2012 (UTC)

Autopatrol given

Hello. I just wanted to let you know that I have granted autopatrol rights to your account; the reason for this is that I believe you are sufficiently trustworthy and experienced to have your contributions automatically sighted. This has no effect on your editing, it is simply intended to help users watching Recent changes or Recent uploads to find unproductive edits amidst the productive ones like yours. In addition, you can now share images from Flickr using the UploadWizard, batch-upload up to 500 files with UploadWizard instead of 50 and upload freely licensed audio files in the MP3 format. Thank you. INeverCry 03:27, 31 August 2013 (UTC)

Monaster w Sakach

Dziękuję za słuszne spostrzeżenie. Podobna sytuacja ma miejsce w Supraślu (kaplica św. Jerzego znajduje się w znacznej odległości od Ławry). W kategorii "Churches" nie powinno być monasterów. Na miarę możliwości będę to poprawiał. Pozdrawiam Roman Miller (talk) 15:46, 25 November 2013 (UTC)

Odp. cerkiew w Czarnej Wielkiej

Pewnie, że tak, ale Katalog zabytków (zeszyt Siemiatycze, Drohiczyn i okolice) nazywa go fundatorem i tym się kierowałam. Loraine (talk) 17:25, 14 August 2014 (UTC)

Odp. ruiny kaplicy w Łowiczu

Wygląda na to, że masz rację. Uwzględniłam to w opisie pliku. Loraine (talk) 17:33, 27 November 2014 (UTC)

Loga SVG

Cześć, ostatnio pomagałeś mi z plikiem logo MESKO w SVG. Teraz wrzuciłem kilka plików z logo PREDOM. Na dole tych logo, w czarnej belce, powinien się pojawić napis z nazwą przedsiębiorstwa, np. tutaj File:Predom-EDA.svg - EDA. Niestety, ale w Inkscape nawet po pobraniu stąd z Commons napis jest, a tutaj na Commons go nie ma i są jakieś błędy w miniaturkach. Czy byłbyś tak dobry i mi pomógł ładując ewentualne poprawki? Z góry wielkie dzięki. Pozdrawiam. Kszapsza (talk) 17:24, 10 March 2015 (UTC)

Jak na razie błędy tutaj w Commons były tak znaczne, że dałem te pliki pod dyskusję nad usunięciem... Pokombinuję później coś od nowa, bo to jednak jest straszna porażka. Najwyżej dam znać. Dzięki za odzew --Kszapsza (talk) 19:38, 10 March 2015 (UTC)


Dlaczego samowolnie zmieniasz licencje, na których zamieściłem pliki (np. [1], [2], [3] itd.)? Siedziałem długimi godzinami nad każdą wektoryzacją i udostępniając plik zastrzegam sobie tylko tyle aby podać, iż jestem autorem tej wektoryzacji. Pragnę zauważyć, iż prawa autorskie osobiste są niezbywalne i nie możesz według własnego uznania mnie ich pozbawiać. Ponadto masowo, bezrefleksyjnie wstawiasz nieodpowiadające polskiemu prawu szablony jak chociażby {{Insignia}} i to również do plików zawierających herby pochodzące ze średniowiecza, jednostek administracyjnych nie istniejących już od ponad 200 lat (Chwaliszewo, Ostrów Tumski), zatem nie podlegające jakiejkolwiek współczesnej ochronie jako urzędowe symbole. Ponadto w wyżej przytoczonych edycjach samowolnie uznałeś, iż jest jeszcze autor opracowania źródłowego, nie przeczytawszy nawet opisu pliku. Zauważ, iż to ja jestem autorem tego opracowania graficznego dokonanego na podstawie badań prof. Gumowskiego. Ponadto dokonując swoich edycji w opisie zmian wprowadzasz w błąd, gdyż nie wykonałeś żadnego czyszczenia kodu tylko bardzo poważnych modyfikacji opisu i licencji pliku według własnego uznania. Wstawiasz również dziwny szablon do dat, w którym zmieniasz poprawne daty na jakieś astronomiczne wartości dni w pierwszych latach naszej ery, co następnie generuje błędny zapis w języku polskim. Zauważ, iż poprawnie zapis daty powinien wyglądać "1 stycznia 2016 r.", a nie "1 stycznia 2016" (§ 17 ZTP) i nigdy nie istniał "2016 dzień miesiąca stycznia roku 1 n.e.". Na marginesie pragnę zauważyć, iż do usuwania zbędnych przekierować jest stosowny szablon - odpowiednik naszego EK i nie ma potrzeby rozpoczynać dyskusji w takich sprawach i informować autora o zamiarze usunięcia. Proszę zatem abyś dokonując kolejnych edycji kierował się znacznie większą ostrożnością a nie tylko chęcią nabicia licznika. Poznaniak (dyskusja) 10:01, 11 marca 2016 (UTC)

Ponieważ nie rozróżniasz czym jest licencja od informacji o autorze wyjaśnię. Jestem autorem wektoryzacji i przysługują mi z tego tytułu prawa autorskie do mojej pracy, sam fakt, iż moje dzieło jest w mniejszym lub większym stopniu podobne do zatwierdzonego urzędowo insygnium nie powoduje automatycznie, iż tracę prawa autorskie do swojego wykonania. Zatem publikując pliki nie tylko podaję informację o swoim autorstwie, ale również udzielam licencji do dalszego używania tego pliku pod warunkiem podania autorstwa. Jeżeli licencjobiorcy nie odpowiadają takie zasady wykorzystania pliku, zawsze może skorzystać z oryginalnego przedstawienia w bitmapie zamieszczonego na stronie jednostki. Ty natomiast nie jesteś licencjodawcą i nie możesz samowolnie zmieniać licencji bez zgody autora pracy. Jeżeli nie podoba Ci się licencja na której został opublikowany plik możesz zwrócić się do autora z prośbą o zmianę licencji lub nie skorzystać z pliku. Natomiast samowolna zmiana licencji jest naruszeniem praw autorskich. Uprzedzając od razu ewentualne pytanie oświadczam, iż nie wyrażam zgody na zmianę licencji moich plików. W średniowieczu nie było urzędowo zatwierdzonych wzorów herbu miasta. Ich przedstawienia pochodzą z zachowanych odcisków pieczęci i zawsze przerysy są w mniejszym lub większym stopniu rekonstrukcją. Co do Dobrodzienia mylisz się, gdyż nie załadowałem bitmapy ze wskazanego przez Ciebie linku, tylko dokonałem wektoryzacji wzoru opublikowanego w Dzienniku Urzędowym, zatem nie mogę wskazać tego linku jako źródła, bo plik źródłowy powstał na moim komputerze. Nie rozróżniasz również ograniczeń w posługiwaniu się urzędowymi symbolami od przepisów penalizujący określone czyny. Jest wiele możliwości użycia plików zamieszczonych na Commons w sposób, który wypełni ustawowe znamiona czynu zabronionego i nie dotyczy to tylko insygniów. Można przecież chociażby użyć zdjęć przedstawiających osoby fizyczne w sposób wypełniający dyspozycję art. 212 lub 216 kk, nie oznacza to jednak ograniczenia prawnoautorskiego w posługiwaniu się plikiem. Szablon {{Insignia}} został stworzony pod kontem herbów angielskich, francuskich czy włoskich (używanie ich nawet w formie przetworzonej plastycznie jest prawnie wątpliwe i co rusz trwają kolejne dyskusje czy w ogóle mogą być publikowane na Commons). Herby włoskie w całości kilka lat temu wyleciały. Herby francuskie są modyfikowane w sposób skrajnie kuriozalno-infantylny w stosunku do używanych urzędowych oryginałów.
PN-EN 28601:2002 została wycofana w dniu 29 maja 2008 r. bez zastąpienia, zatem nie przekonujesz mnie, iż jest to format dopuszczalny, pomijając nawet to, że jest idiotyczny. Ponadto nie jest dla mnie istotne, że w innym języku data taka wyświetli się poprawnie, skoro w języku polskim wyświetla się błędnie. Wskazałem już wyżej § 17 ZTP, który określa taki sposób zapisu dat, również wszelkie inne akty prawne wskazują taki sposób. Umieszczenie na końcu r. nie jest opcjonalne, tylko konieczne, istotnym jest również, iż oznaczenie roku od skrótu słowa rok koniecznie musi być oddzielone spacją.
Co do Ek prawdopodobnie się pospieszyłeś i wstawiłeś szablon przed przelinkowanie odnośników przez bota. Poznaniak (dyskusja) 13:40, 12 marca 2016 (UTC)
Wybacz, ale nic z Twojej "interpretacji" przepisów prawa nie rozumiem. Próbujesz mnie pouczać o prawie, a nie wiesz co to jest ZTP (zasady techniki prawodawczej) i wyciągasz wnioski odmienne od sensu orzeczenia SN. Powyżej wyjaśniłem pokrótce kwestię praw autorskich do wektoryzacji. Temat ten był już dyskutowany na Wikipedii jakieś 11 lat temu. Jeżeli powyższe wyjaśnienia nie są dla Ciebie wystarczające, mogę przygotować szerszą opinię prawną na temat praw autorskich do wektoryzacji, ale uprzedzam, iż wystawię fakturę VAT. Co do szablonu "insignia" to nie widzę potrzeby zaśmiecania opisu pliku szablonami, które zupełnie nic nie wnoszą. To, iż grafika przedstawia herb jest oczywistym, natomiast nic więcej logicznego z jego treści nie wynika i nie naprowadza nawet na to jakich ograniczeń może to dotyczyć. Tak samo przy każdym zdjęciu broni palnej nie trzeba dodawać, iż zabijanie człowieka jest karalne. Takie treści są po prostu kuriozalne. Poznaniak (dyskusja) 16:03, 13 marca 2016 (UTC)
Postaraj się zatem przeczytać podlinkowany przez Ciebie tekst ze zrozumieniem. Zdaje się, że nie odróżnisz mechanicznego wykonania kopii od odwzorowania obiektu w innej technologii, wymagającego posiadania określonej wiedzy i umiejętności. Jeżeli nie masz pojęcia o prawie to nie jest działaniem nadmiernie logicznym pouczanie w tej materii radcy prawnego. Wobec powyższego temat uważam za zakończony. Poznaniak (dyskusja) 12:08, 14 March 2016 (UTC)

Re: Zamiana {{OP}} na {{Jdx/Archive 1}}

Cześć. Bo {{subst:OP}} (kod: {{tlp|subst:OP}}) było (i jest) czerwone, a ostrzeżenia nie zauważyłem. Jeśli wiesz, co tam powinno być, to popraw. Po prostu bez "subst", tak jak w nagłówku? Ja w Commons trochę się błąkam. Pozdrawiam, Michał Sobkowski (talk) 19:15, 14 April 2016 (UTC)

Super. A czy "OTRS-pending" w sekcji "Wzór oświadczenia" też nie powinien być zmieniony na OP? Pozdrawiam, Michał Sobkowski (talk) 06:58, 15 April 2016 (UTC)

Leccinum aurantiacum czy leccinum versipelle

Za uwagi w sprawie tych zdjęć dziękuję. Słusznie zauważyłeś, że jest tu błąd i że jest to Leccinum aurantiacum opisane pod dwoma nazwami. Skąd się wziął błąd? - wstawiłem zdjęcia ze swojego archiwum zdjęć sporo po ich wykonaniu. Jest kilka lat różnicy. Ponieważ wstawiam na commons tysiące zdjęć grzybów i roślin, by uniknąć pomyłki archiwizuję wstawione również na swoim kompie. No cóż, przy takiej ilości zdjęć pomyłka czasami może się zdarzyć. Poprawię. Jeśli chodzi o datę: w części zdjęć mam usuniętą datę wykonania, bywa też, że w aparacie była niezaktualizowana i jest błędna. Ponieważ commons domaga się daty, więc wpisuję datę ich wstawienia na commons. Selso (talk) 16:16, 18 May 2016 (UTC)

Błędnie opisane zdjęcie Leccinum_versipelle_P4.jpg istnieje również w późniejszej, prawidłowo opisanej wersji jako Leccinum aurantiacum.

Hello, I noticed that you notified a number of users regarding poty translation whiteout consulting with the committee first and before the POTY results are verified and announced. Apart from that i also had to revert some of your edits a while ago (adding of categories in a wrong way). Please don't do that again, the committee is deciding stuff - not a single user. If you are interested in helping in 2016 please add your name here. --Steinsplitter (talk) 07:10, 29 May 2016 (UTC)

@Steinsplitter: Regarding notification – I don't see my mistake here. I haven't notified general public about results (and I don't intend to), but 60-something translators about translation which needs to be updated. The end of the contest is rather important information and translations should be updated, especially that we will have to wait some time for the official results. Regarding categorization of POTY's messages – yeah, it's my bad. I haven't been careful enough. --jdx Re: 08:17, 29 May 2016 (UTC)
Sending out a notification to x-users for a simple update is not okay, especially because the page needs a update soon. And the POTY committee is managing the poty stuff, such as notifications etc. If you don't see the error, then your TA access schould be revoked. The notification tool is just for important stuff, sending out a notice for every little update is not okay. --Steinsplitter (talk) 08:35, 29 May 2016 (UTC)
I can accept that notification about a small update is not OK, however I don't feel guilty because I can't see what's wrong and what's right in mw:Help:Extension:Translate/Page translation administration. Also there is no hint or a link to a help page in Special:NotifyTranslators. And yes, I know that the committee manages notifications, but as far as I understand this document, not this kind of notifications. --jdx Re: 09:42, 29 May 2016 (UTC)



Yes, I sent him an email to make him aware of the re-publication issues and he nicely answered me he will send an email to confirm his identity this week-end.

In my opinion, he didn't try to "forge", he's just lost with our way of working... just as 95% of non-wikimedian people... especially non-geek middle-aged artistic minds ;-)

I follow this image and let you know if there is any problem with it!

Hi Jdx—I noticed that you do a lot of work reverting vandalism/test edits made by anonymous contributors, and I added you to the "patroller" user group so you could mark them as patrolled yourself rather than waiting for someone else to do it.

Thanks for the great effort reducing the number of unpatrolled edits! Before, unpatrolled edits are at 20K, 21K, or even 27K. But now it is at 16K! I wondered who is/are the user(s) that spent their time to patrol Commons, and seeing the patrol log (in manual patrol mode), most of the patrols are from you. Keep it up, your contributions are appreciated!   Poké95 07:27, 8 July 2016 (UTC)


dziękuję za pomoc w uporządkowaniu szablonów i opisów, bo mnie te kwestie techniczne zaczynają przerastać i mocno zniechęcać już od jakiegoś czasu (szczególnie gdy nie zwiększają realnych możliwości, a tylko pozorne, lub co gorzej, zmierzają pod pretekstami ułatwień do ich ograniczania dla wytresowania określonych zachowań użytkownika), z tego powodu zależałoby mi na tej wzmiance, którą usunąłeś, dla podkreślenia sprzeczność PD≠license, dlatego szukam sposobu, by rezultaty moich prac gdzieś jednak tak opisać nie niszcząc samych grafik opisami, ale o tym możemy jeszcze kiedyś zamienić dwa słowa jakbyś miał na to jakiś pomysł, natomiast w sprawie tej mapy lokalizacyjnej Chełma, to jednak przydałaby się jakaś pilna dyskusja, jak ją poprawić, bo to bardzo zła mapa pod względem graficznym i bardzo zniekształcony obraz miasta i wyobrażenia o tym mieście w ten sposób kreuje na masową skalę, a szkoda - nie mam niestety doświadczenia w takich akcjach na wiki, ani w takich dyskusjach jak zaproponowałeś - dlatego zamieściłem tylko zapytanie do Powerka, bo to akurat jeszcze potrafię (nawet nie wiedziałem, że teraz ping można wysłać ;) - już wcześniej zauważyłem, że Przemek Jahr zniknął i Aotearoa, a to wielka szkoda, ja też już sporadycznie zaglądam na polską wiki, bo coraz więcej tam arogantów co pomóc nigdy nie potrafią, ale za to uwielbiają niszczyć, tu jest trochę lepiej, bo obcy bardziej szanują to co robisz, niż swoi :D - ale możliwe, że tak jak radzisz tu Dyskusja wikiprojektu:Szablony lokalizacyjne można o tym porozmawiać, tylko z tego co widzę tam są dyskusje o kwestiach technicznych, w których ja nie mam nic do powiedzenia, bo mi chodzi o merytoryczną wartość takiej mapy - wcale nie musi być mapa moim zdaniem, bo wystarczyłby prosty schemat jak w wielu miastach, bo taki przynajmniej krzywdy nikomu nie robi a w przypadku Chełma nie dość, że to mapa, to jeszcze niedobra, pozdr., --wkaczura (talk) 09:09, 8 July 2016 (UTC)

  • jeszcze nie zdążyłem odpowiedzieć Powerkowi, lecz z jego reakcji rozumiem, że nie będzie robił wojny z powodu chęci poprawy i wymiany jego mapy lokalizacyjnej, więc zerknąłem na mapy lokalizacyjne innych miast i są bardzo różne i różnej jakości graficznej, głównie w formatach png i svg, więc wydaje mi się, że to nie byłaby jakaś przesadna filozofia ze zrobieniem prostego schematu na początek, bo z takimi plikami, to nawet sam powinienem sobie poradzić, gorzej z mapą, gdyż dziś do opracowania dobrej mapy potrzebne są dane numeryczne, oprogramowanie i już trochę większa wiedza kartograficzna, a nie wiem czy gdzieś w internecie jest otwarty dostęp do takich danych (wystarczająco szczegółowych), bo może gdzieś już jest, tylko dotąd nie widziałem - to akurat mogą wiedzieć ci, co się profesjonalnie mapami zajmują - w takiej sytuacji, by zbytnio nie komplikować, tylko upraszczać, to na początek spróbuję taki schemat zrobić sam i wysłać Powerkowi, bo to może wystarczy, a po drodze jeszcze spróbuję poszukać kogoś od map - później zobaczymy co z tego wyniknie, dam Ci znać, natomiast odnoście wzmianki, to właśnie chodzi o "without a licenses” lub podobną o charakterze oświadczenia dla podkreślenia, że PD≠license, na czym o tyle mi zależy, gdy dotyczy tego co sam robię i zamieszczam gdziekolwiek w internecie, lecz z tej kwestii to już nie chcę robić żadnej dyskusji na tym forum, bo to inny wymiar sprawy, mogę wyjaśnić mailem w razie potrzeby, --wkaczura (talk) 23:29, 8 July 2016 (UTC)

Any interest in becoming a Commons administrator? You definitely have the qualifications. INeverCry 01:50, 4 September 2016 (UTC)

@INeverCry: Yes, I am interested. However I am not so optimistic about my qualifications. First I have to read "Commons Administration for Dummies" and related stuff. So give me a few weeks before you nominate me.   --jdx Re: 20:32, 4 September 2016 (UTC)
Sounds good to me. Let me know if and when you're ready. 3000 edits in the Commons namespace, regular reporting of vandals and socks to AN, and plenty of DR/CSD experience makes you a strong candidate. As for really learning to use the tools, you've got to have the tools first. It's kind of like reading about how to ride a bike. You'll never know how to ride without getting on a bike and peddling around. Here you mostly end up copying what the active admins are doing when you start out.

Note: I see you have en-1 listed on your userpage; I would suggest changing that to en-3 based on your response here. INeverCry 20:48, 4 September 2016 (UTC)

File:Circus Circus Reno logo (5).png

FYI, that IP is not a vandal... though the person is annoying. It's someone from the Reno Chamber of Commerce (who refuses to create an account) that has been harassing me, and a few other people, on IRC about a huge number of logos of various businesses they dump on WP:FFU. The logos are themselves (at least inherently) fine... the attitude, and the intended use (see en:Ovation Brands) gets very obnoxious, and their later edits to the file pages are indeed occasionally bs. Thanks for reverting there. Reventtalk 23:04, 4 September 2016 (UTC)

Template:Convert to SVG and Template:Information other versions

Do not place Template:Convert to SVG outside of Template:Information. It's not pretty, it's not helpful, and it encourages flagging more templates outside of the box inappropriately where they become less accessible. The information template supports other fields with Template:Information field. Note that it should be accepted practice to also use Template:Extracted from is allowed in source/other version fields and Template:Vector version available in other version field too, similarly to Template:Convert to SVG. 13:28, 5 September 2016 (UTC)

Worthless Opinions.

Hello, my Polish friend. I just thought I'd put you right on a couple of things regarding your comments here.

The tank in the photograph is a Mark II Female, C21 of C Company, named The Perfect Lady, equipped with Lewis guns. (Source: David Fletcher, British Battle Tanks, World War I to 1939, Pub Osprey 2016, p35) This and other Mark II tanks fought at Bullecourt, Arras, Monchy, and Neuville Vitasse in April 1917 (The Fighting Tanks Since 1916; Jones, Rary, and Icks; WE Inc, 1933, p9) but did not serve at Cambrai except as supply tanks (Source: both of the above plus any respectable work on Cambrai). A Mark II with Lewis guns cannot, therefore, have been at Cambrai. If you look at this photograph from the IWM you will see that the caption reads "THE BATTLE OF ARRAS, APRIL-MAY 1917, part of "MINISTRY OF INFORMATION FIRST WORLD WAR OFFICIAL COLLECTION" (photographs) Made by: Brooke, John Warwick (Lieutenant) (Photographer)Q 6298, Two Mark II tanks of the 'C' Battalion (C21 and C26) going into action." The picture under discussion was taken at the same time as and belongs with these photographs.

You can also see C21 in another IWM photo on her own here, captioned "THE BATTLE OF ARRAS, APRIL-MAY 1917".

Unfortunately, the Illustrated London News of December 1st, 1917, as part of its coverage of Cambrai, used photographs of C21 and C26 crossing a trench, with the caption "'The Perfect Lady' - here a tank makes easy work of crossing the trenches." They don't seem to have noticed that these are two different tanks, one male and one female. The mistake is reproduced in Chris McNab's Battle Story Cambrai. The book even has C21 on the cover. This is another example of Wikipedia's fatal flaw: a reliable source providing information that is completely wrong.

BTW, The Perfect Lady was commanded by Lieutenant G. Salter, and was destroyed by "friendly fire" and abandoned, on April 11th, 1917, seven months before Cambrai. If you want a source for that, there's Monchy le Preux by Colin Fox, Pub Leo Cooper, 2000. One crew member was killed, and 5 wounded.

And this is what happens when a Wikipedian encounters someone who knows what they are talking about. Instead of doing some research, you can only manage to be abusive. You could, rather than being a smartarse, have done what I have done, which is to speak to the Imperial War Museum, explain the mistake, and send them details so that the mistake can be corrected. The IWM's caption is wrong. That can happen. It will shortly be corrected. Since I have provided sources that correctly identify the tank, and I don't want to waste any more of my time, I propose to reinstate my correction here. Or would you prefer to wait until the IWM have made their corrections?

Post your reply here. —Preceding unsigned comment was added by (talk) 22:49, 04 October 2016 (UTC)

How can anybody know that an anonym knows what he is talking about when information he provides is contradictory to the information provided by reputable institution and he does not give a word of explanation? How can anybody treat him seriously? Also I could not have done what you have done – WWI is not my field of expertise. Anyway, I really appreciate that you have informed IWM about the issue and I will change the photo's description and copy your message to the file talk page. --jdx Re: 07:37, 5 October 2016 (UTC)

@Arian Writing: You are not the author of the photo, it was published on Facebook and on Flickr and there is no indication that it is licenced under a free licence. That's why I deleted it. However it is still possible to undelete the photo – please read COM:OTRS. --jdx Re: 22:50, 23 October 2016 (UTC)
(talk page stalker) @Arian Writing: And please don't reupload deleted content just like what you did on File:Arian Writing.jpeg. Just like what Jdx said above, this file was published on Flickr, and it was not taken by you. You should ask Ferdus Ahmed to follow the procedure on OTRS, since he owns the copyright of this file, not you. Thanks, Poké95 11:28, 24 October 2016 (UTC)

@Arian Writing: Log in to your Flickr account, change the photo's licence to a free one (i.e. CC-BY, CC-BY-SA or CC0) and let know about it on COM:AN (or here). Then an administrator will review the licence and undelete the photo. --jdx Re: 10:04, 25 October 2016 (UTC)

Congrats! I expect that the number of reports on COM:AN/V will decrease, now that you can block vandals with just a button...   P.S. I also expect that the number of unpatrolled edits will increase, since you're now an admin. Once a patroller becomes an admin, their time will be divided between patrolling stuff and admin tasks, since there are a lot of admin backlogs to do, like COM:DR, and COM:CSD. So I will be increasing my focus on patrolling every weekends... Poké95 02:19, 20 October 2016 (UTC)

Edit request

Thank you for editing the template W. May I ask you to do another edit on a protected template: if the optional parameter style is added to the attributes of {{Partnership-Layout}} it can be better modified. The first part of the template should be replaced by

<noinclude>{|</noinclude>class="layouttemplate licensetpl mw-content-{{Dir|{{{lang}}}}}" lang="{{{lang|{{int:lang}}}}}" cellspacing="8" cellpadding="0" style="width:100%;clear:both;margin:0.5em auto;background-color:#e2f2d2;border:2px solid #acce79;direction:{{Dir|{{{lang}}}}};{{{style|}}}"{{License template tag}}<noinclude>

to insert that parameter. After insertion I will maintain the documentation. Thank you sarang사랑 11:26, 16 November 2016 (UTC)

@Sarang: Done, but I left old colours in order not to change appearance of templates such as {{GFDL}}. --jdx Re: 17:45, 16 November 2016 (UTC)
Thank you, good that you looked so careful - seems that I mixed up something instead of my caring... It should have been

instead, but it will work fine as it is now. Sorry for my fault, next time I will look and check more often. sarang사랑 06:34, 17 November 2016 (UTC)

Category:Photographs by Spotting973

Just FYI, the author (who is a professional photographer) was displeased that the images he had donated to Commons were ranking higher for his name in Google Search results than his own website, and so asked (via email) that the attribution be changed... they are all still sourced to his Flickr stream, they just don't actually show his name in the visible text.

IPv6 blocks

Hi Jdx. I noticed your vandalism block of Special:Contributions/2607:FB90:1BC6:D909:4A6D:7080:DDD7:DDC. I've re-blocked with a rangeblock of the /64. IPv6 IPs are assigned to regular ISP customers in blocks of /64 usually, so blocking only the one address may only last a few minutes. This range block of 2607:FB90:1BC6:D909:0:0:0:0/64 is like blocking a single regular IPv4 address. When you want to block an IPv6 vandal, just type in a /64 after the single address and the software will automatically block the whole /64. A little something I learned as a checkuser way back when. You're doing an excellent job as an admin so far BTW.   lNeverCry 05:16, 23 November 2016 (UTC)

One other note, unrelated. Since you do some patrolling, if you see any IPs editing roadsign images and categories, can you let me know on my talk? IP edits like these: Special:Contributions/ come from the most active LTA sockmaster on Commons, Jermboy27 (globally locked). He mixes in some vandal edits with good ones. He's been at it for nearly 10 years now here on Commons, and has likely done 1 million+ edits. He's not like most sockmasters. He often has static IPs that he uses for years, so my blocks of his IPs are often for a year or more. I've seen a few IPs that he's used on and off for 5 years or more. He's probably the most active sockmaster in WMF history, nevermind just Commons. lNeverCry 05:33, 23 November 2016 (UTC)
@INeverCry: Yeah, recently I've seen a lot of edits related to road signs (mostly German) and I believe all of them have been made by mentioned above. However they haven't looked harmful to me. Now I'll be more careful. --jdx Re: 06:00, 23 November 2016 (UTC)
Yeah, two of his methods are adding doing just a few bad edits that break templates, etc out of a larger number of edits, or creating categories that're really only differently named dupes of other categories, etc. He's based in New Zealand, so his IPs are almost always based in NZ or Perth Australia. He'll use a transparent proxy now and then, but it's rare to see that or especially slow open proxies. He also creates an account once in a while to upload roadsign images, sometimes good sometimes fake, but that's also very rare. I do my best to slow him down and make things a bit more difficult for him. Nobody can like having to repeat hours worth of work, and I would hate to have any LTA feel comfortable here at Commons... lNeverCry 06:20, 23 November 2016 (UTC)

Your recent change in markAdmins Gadget

Let me thank you also on your talk page, but – yes, there is something :-) – you introduced a small typo: variblesvariables. — Speravir – 20:35, 4 December 2016 (UTC)

@Speravir: Fixed, but please look closer at the diff – I'm not the person who introduced the typo.   --jdx Re: 20:55, 4 December 2016 (UTC)
Oops. Sorry, and thank you, again. — Speravir – 21:03, 4 December 2016 (UTC)
Another observation – I’ve added the code into my commons.js and noticed, that a cosmetic change would perhaps be good: Instead of using line comments the user config code could be included in a block comment and a bit of the indentation could be removed also. What do you think about this? What I exactly mean:
// of stewards and local OTRS members, following lines must be added):
//		window.markAdminCfg =	{ groups: {
//									sysop:			{ enabled: false },
//									steward:		{ enabled: true },
//									'OTRS-member':	{ enabled: true }
//										  }
//					  			};
converting to (I changed also some tab to space chars)
// of stewards and local OTRS members, following lines must be added (without '/*' and '*/'):
window.markAdminCfg = { groups: {
							sysop: { enabled: false },
							steward: { enabled: true },
							'OTRS-member': { enabled: true }
BTW the tab chars are nasty: They look different in edit window here than in preview or after saving. I therefore usually prefer spaces, though the code size gets bigger (I’m not a coder), in my commons.js I left out most of this white space. — Speravir – 18:57, 7 December 2016 (UTC)
@Speravir: I just wanted comment style to be consistent with the rest of the file – the original authors have used double slash comments for multi-line comments. Also please note that the block comment at the top is a comment for documentation generators such as Doxygen or Javadoc. Anyway, IMO it's not worth to touch it.   --jdx Re: 20:03, 7 December 2016 (UTC)
Well then. I can live with it, but thought of others. — Speravir – 20:38, 7 December 2016 (UTC)

Samuel David Alexander.jpg

I don't understand why you reverse my decision to cancell the request for deletion. My answer to Magog seems quite clear: this is a photography and the croatian law says: a photograph or a work of applied art published before January 1, 1974 is in the public domain. The man on the photo died during WWII.--FLLL (talk) 14:30, 12 December 2016 (UTC)

@FLLL: Do you mean this edit? I reverted it because:
  1. the proper place for discussion is DR page, i.e. Commons:Deletion requests/File:Samuel David Alexander.jpg,
  2. removing {{Delete}} template from file description page does not cancel properly filled DR,
  3. you removed the template anonymously, without a word of explanation in edit summary what strongly suggests a vandalism.
--jdx Re: 15:41, 12 December 2016 (UTC)
You will note that before deleting the template, I have written the reason on Commons:Deletion requests/File:Samuel David Alexander.jpg, and secondly, I find Magog a little speedy to ask for deletion, without having read the special croatian template which was mentionned on the File:Samuel David Alexander.jpg page.--FLLL (talk) 18:07, 12 December 2016 (UTC)

This is going to be singificantly more of a problem...You see, Romania made these two submarines, Rechinul and Marsuinul.

Admin help needed

Hi, may I ask you again - some recent expansions need to become active. It can be done only by an admin.
Please replace the code of the following protected templates by the code of their sandboxes:

{{Image generation}} {{Image generation/sandbox}}
{{Created with/en}} {{Created with/sandbox/en}}
{{Created with Inkscape}} {{Created with Inkscape/sandbox}}
{{Created with Inkscape/en}} {{Created with Inkscape/sandbox/en}}
{{Created with Adobe Illustrator}} {{Created with Adobe Illustrator/sandbox}}

It is not urgent, and the changes are independent from each other. sarang사랑 09:16, 24 January 2017 (UTC)

PNG filter thoughts

On Special:AbuseFilter/162, the current filter

& file_size > 3145728 /* omit reasonably sized bitmaps, ie. smaller than 3 MiB */
& file_size > int(1.01 * 4 * 2 * file_width * file_height)

has 95 matches on the current databases. I suggest for consideration

& file_size > 3145728 + int(1.01 * 4 * file_bits_per_channel / 8 * file_width * file_height)

which has only 15 matches on the database. Most of the reduction due to the arbitrary fixed offset. Keep in mind the filters can't take animations (e.g. File:Sts-126-fd15-flyaround.png) or the Fireworks files (most used as crude PNG converter). I would probably add & user_age < 7 * 24 * 3600 /* a week */. Dispenser (talk) 16:35, 18 February 2017 (UTC)

Code issues in MediaWiki:Gadget-GallerySlideshow.js

Hi Jdx, I am a bored bot (this is kind of a computer program) that is watching the recent changes and tapping buttons like I did now.

Curious about the reason? Possibly not but I will tell you anyway:

  1. You edited MediaWiki:Gadget-GallerySlideshow.js. Thank you for caring about Wikimedia Commons's javascript pages.
  2. Though, that change appears to introduce 8 new jshint issues — the page's status is now having warnings.
  3. To help you understanding where the issues are, I have aggregated a report here and now. If you have questions, don't hesitate to ask users experienced in javascript writing for help. But do not ask the bot's operators (chronically overwrought) unless you suspect an error of mine.

@MaGa: {{Done}} and {{Not done}} are "harder" cases because actually they do not use {{LangSwitch}}, but localized messages from MediaWiki namespace. These messages may be created locally (on Commons) or may be provided by MediaWiki software. In the latter case they should be translated using The first method is quick and easy, but the second is more proper/elegant.

@MichaelMaggs: In order to mark a (translatable) page for translation you have to be translation admin. Anyway, when you want to add a new translation unit to a page, please add its content enclosed in "translate" tags but without its number. Then a translation admin marks the page for translation and the system (i.e. MediaWiki's Translate Extension) automatically assigns a number to the new translation unit. --jdx Re: 19:13, 12 April 2017 (UTC)

Reminder: Round 2 of Picture of the Year 2016 is open!

You are receiving this message because you voted in R1 of the 2016 Picture of the Year contest.

Dear Jdx,

Wikimedia Commons is happy to announce that the second round of the 2016 Picture of the Year competition is now open. This year will be the eleventh edition of the annual Wikimedia Commons photo competition, which recognizes exceptional contributions by users on Wikimedia Commons. Wikimedia users are invited to vote for their favorite images featured on Commons during the last year (2016) to produce a single Picture of the Year.

Hundreds of images that have been rated Featured Pictures by the international Wikimedia Commons community in the past year were entered in this competition. These images include professional animal and plant shots, breathtaking panoramas and skylines, restorations of historical images, photographs portraying the world's best architecture, impressive human portraits, and so much more.

There are two total rounds of voting. In the first round, you voted for as many images as you liked. In Round 1, there were 1475 candidate images. There are 58 finalists in Round 2, comprised of the top 30 overall as well as the top #1 and #2 from each sub-category.

In the final round, you may vote for just one or maximal three image to become the Picture of the Year.

Round 2 will end on 20 April 2017, 23:59:59 UTC.

File:Agadir marinaa.jpg

This file (detected as 'unknown MIME' by the bot) doesn't appear to have an embedded archive..... I downloaded it, and actually tried extracting it with several tools, and none worked. I think it's a false positive. - Reventtalk 20:17, 22 April 2017 (UTC)

@Revent: Go to and compare the photo sizes from that page and ours. "The original" has ~82,2 KiB which equals the offset reported by the bot. Besides, ~6.5 MiB for a 1000×700 photo is simply way too much. So there must be something attached to the photo. Also this user already uploaded a file with embedded data in January. If it's not enough, almost for sure this file is a copyvio. --jdx Re: 20:52, 22 April 2017 (UTC)
Fair enough... I wasn't actually going to undelete it (or even specifically asking you to) I was just doublechecking the bot on those 'unknown file'. I'll see if I can figure out what it is... - Reventtalk 20:59, 22 April 2017 (UTC)


Hi, Please marked this page & it's subpage for translation (like you did last year here). Thank you. --Aftabuzzaman (talk) 18:53, 26 April 2017 (UTC)

@Aftabuzzaman: Done. I hope that everything is fine. --jdx Re: 21:46, 27 April 2017 (UTC)
Thanks. There is one problem. Remove Page display title from translating, because of that Commons:Wiki_Loves_Earth_2017_in_Bangladesh/bn gives "Warning: Display title...... " --Aftabuzzaman (talk) 22:14, 27 April 2017 (UTC)
And please mark this page also. --Aftabuzzaman (talk) 22:16, 27 April 2017 (UTC)
  Done Also I have fixed template {{WLEBD2017 links}}. --jdx Re: 09:09, 28 April 2017 (UTC)

impersonator sockpuppeteer

Hi Jan. FYI - we have a VOA sockmaster active on Commons and Meta who, amongst other nonsense, copies the userpages of admins and stewards to his own userpage. He honored you with his latest sock: Azertytaezerrtzty [4]. I've found several socks over the last week or so while patrolling new userpages for spam and whatnot. It looks like he just targets admins randomly, but you never know. Daphne Lantier 03:04, 1 May 2017 (UTC)

@Daphne Lantier: Hehe, that's nice of him that he honoured me.   Anyway, a few days ago I spotted Talking Younes (and Wahed123, most likely its sock puppet) who had similar modus operandi. But s/he was also involved in WP0 abusing. --jdx Re: 03:49, 1 May 2017 (UTC)
Yesterday I got another sock locked that was active here and on Meta: Clach baby. This one also put up your page [5] but used the page of a steward from Finland on Meta. Daphne Lantier 03:58, 1 May 2017 (UTC)
