Uploading online public domain photos of paintingsEdit

Hello Geoff, I have created an article John James Wilson (painter) who died in 1875, and I would like to add some images of his work. Some examples are on the following web sites.

BFP1BFP1 (talk) 18:36, 11 February 2018 (UTC) Sorry. I should have addressed you as Jeff!BFP1BFP1 (talk) 18:46, 11 February 2018 (UTC)

@BFP1: You may upload those images using our {{PD-Art}} exception, with license "{{PD-Art|PD-old-auto-1923|deathyear=1875}}". You may also consider removing the extra "BFP1" from the beginning of your signature, as it is disconcerting.   — Jeff G. ツ please ping or talk to me 19:36, 11 February 2018 (UTC)
Thanks Jeff. The problem is as a beginner I do not know how to use {{PD-Art}} and do not understand your reference to etc. Also, I will happily remove the extra BFP1 if you indicate how. Please be patient with me. BFP1BFP1 (talk) 20:07, 11 February 2018 (UTC) — Preceding unsigned comment added by BFP1 (talk • contribs) 20:03, 11 February 2018 (UTC)
@BFP1: Please pay no attention to the nowikis, they were just used to keep from expanding the license on this page (sort of like using the curtain to disguise The Wizard of Oz), just use what's inside the quotes. Re your sig, please read Template:Please sign.   — Jeff G. ツ please ping or talk to me 20:14, 11 February 2018 (UTC)

More info on G Force OneEdit

is now available here.

Thanks — Altman (talk) 17:07, 12 February 2018 (UTC)

@Altman: I'll leave it to Majora.   — Jeff G. ツ please ping or talk to me 00:35, 13 February 2018 (UTC)

Undeletion RequestEdit

hi Mr. Jeff, I am writing because I would like to discuss with you the question of 'user a1cb3, because I really can not understand his absolute bad faith in the deleted files, in fact in the last request made I had also included the source of the file , with all the necessary information, I would like to ask you above all to you that you do not trust these files, I would just like to get a way out of this situation until you know the structure of those files, portraits, paintings and photographs of the era, and of all this you can use the PD license. I await your response, good work--87.8.134.11 16:33, 14 February 2018 (UTC)

Hey anonymous user. Jeff G. is not an administrator so he can't help you there. It is best for you to head over to COM:AN to ask. Artix Kreiger (talk) 16:36, 14 February 2018 (UTC)


Code issues in User:Jeff G./common.jsEdit

Hi Jeff G., 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 User:Jeff G./common.js. Glad to see you coding in javascript! Have you ever considered becoming a MediaWiki hacker?
  2. Though, that change appears to introduce 5 new jshint issues -- the page's status is now having ERRORS. Note that invalid or ambiguous code often has unwanted side effects like breaking other tools for you. If you cannot find out how to fix it, I suggest blanking the page for now.
  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. If you prefer not getting spammed by me, you can opt-out reports by adding {{ValidationOptOut|type=all}} to your user page. Good luck at Wikimedia Commons and happy hacking!
  1. ISSUE: line 30 character 21: Expected '}' to match '{' from line 25 and instead saw 'talk_tag'. - Evidence: 'talk_tag': '{'+'{subst:speedynote|1=%FILE%|2=%PARAMETER%}}',
  2. ISSUE: line 30 character 31: Expected ']' to match '[' from line 24 and instead saw ':'. - Evidence: 'talk_tag': '{'+'{subst:speedynote|1=%FILE%|2=%PARAMETER%}}',
  3. ISSUE: line 30 character 32: Missing semicolon. - Evidence: 'talk_tag': '{'+'{subst:speedynote|1=%FILE%|2=%PARAMETER%}}',
  4. ISSUE: line 31 character 35: Missing semicolon. - Evidence: 'talk_summary': 'Notification of possible speedy deletion for %FILE%',
  5. ISSUE: line 31 character 35: Expected '(end)' and instead saw ':'. - Evidence: 'talk_summary': 'Notification of possible speedy deletion for %FILE%',

Re: File:Tunyuan Trailhead.jpgEdit

I received the message you left on my talk page. Why do you think it is a canvassing? I saw you didn't answer my question on Commons:Deletion requests/File:Tunyuan Trailhead.jpg, so what do you want me to do?--Kai3952 (talk) 10:51, 15 February 2018 (UTC)

File:Welcomebanner.gifEdit

Hi Jeff. You're a Commons guy, (remember Kendra Haste?) I've just gone to a lot of trouble redesigning the Welcomebanner.gif and uploaded the new. So the new does actually exist but it shows on my talk page as the old, (as also above). yet when I click on the damn thing it displays the new. Wtf. I expect you have the wherewithal to kill the old version, I will be very grateful. MarkDask 17:37, 17 February 2018 (UTC)

Commons:Requests for checkuser/Case/MeterrsEdit

Please, watch after whom do you edit pages. Did you notice a small ! in the history? Incnis Mrsi (talk) 23:12, 18 February 2018 (UTC)

@Incnis Mrsi: No, but he explained his removal and CUs can clearly see what he is doing. Please remove {{checkuser requests to be listed}} from each case once you have transcluded it.   — Jeff G. ツ please ping or talk to me 23:46, 18 February 2018 (UTC)
