Berlin Brandenburg GateEdit

Hallo Jmabel, Du kannst mein Foto Brandenburger Tor bei Nacht ( Brandenburg Gate by night auf Deiner privaten Homepage verwenden, wenn Du eine Link zur meinem Foto auf der Wikimedia-Seite setzt und meinen Namen nennst: Pedelecs by Wikimedia.

  • I'm missing context here. I don't remember ever asking to use your picture, and I'm certainly not currently using it. Perhaps this relates to someone else's query on the Help desk or Village pump, where I answer a lot of the questions. (Ich vermisse Kontext hier. Ich glaube nicht daran erinnern, jemals zu fragen, um Ihr Bild zu benutzen, und ich bin sicher nicht gerade benutzen. Vielleicht bezieht sich auf Abfrage die jemand anderes im Helpdesk oder Dorfpumpe, wo ich beantworten viele der Fragen.) - Jmabel ! talk 17:36, 3 January 2016 (UTC)

Industrial laundriesEdit

I don't think I had any other options:

  • You're probably right about it being a dry-cleaning place, but dry cleaning isn't something that would have come to mind
  • The description for Category:Laundromat read "Laundromats, launderettes or laundrettes are commercial laundries where the customer can operate the machines". So-and-so Cleaners doesn't sound like a place with customer-operated machines.
  • Category:Laundries was created in 2011, and Category:Laundries in the United States just last year.

I'm not seeing any other laundry-related categories that would be applicable to buildings, except for stuff created after I uploaded it with Category:Industrial laundry. Thanks for letting me know, as I'll fix it, but I don't think I could have done any better in 2009. Nyttend (talk) 01:54, 9 January 2016 (UTC)

Category for one item reduxEdit

Usually a bot fills that in, but I do not know how often it is run. If one is filled and the other empty the bot migrates it to fill the field. --Richard Arthur Norton (1958- ) (talk) 23:11, 12 January 2016 (UTC)

  • I can't really show you more than that without undeleting, which doesn't seem worth the effort unless you really want me to. And I'm unaware of any particular way to get a history of what might once have been in the category. - Jmabel ! talk 06:07, 15 January 2016 (UTC)
    • Well, I've seen instances where you can get histories of articles and categories, and instance where you can, even without restoration. I just looked up my history from that time, and I don't even see my name attached to either category. As for restoring this, don't even bother. ----DanTD (talk) 13:33, 15 January 2016 (UTC)

File:White Genocide Illustrated.pngEdit

Would you have a look at File:White Genocide Illustrated.png? I suspect that it is not original work and may be a copyright violation as it may have been created without credit by combining graphics from this source: Diversity Explosion: How New Racial Demographics are Remaking America - William H. Frey - Google Books.

I also object to the name of the file, which I do not believe represents the data in the graphic. Ipso facto from the data, it is absurd to conclude that anyone is actually carrying out genocide against whites.

Peaceray (talk) 06:27, 2 June 2016 (UTC)

  • Quite possibly nothing copyrightable there: it may be all so simple as to be ineligible. But if all the colors are straight from the book, then it could possibly be problematic. And I certainly agree about the contentious name. Is there any reason you wrote to me rather than nominate it for deletion? - Jmabel ! talk 14:21, 2 June 2016 (UTC)
    • Yeah, am much more familiar with deletion templates in en.wikipedia than commons. Next time I'll figure out how to do that! Peaceray (talk) 22:17, 2 June 2016 (UTC)


Code issues in User:Jmabel/common.jsEdit

Hi Jmabel, 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:Jmabel/common.js. Glad to see you coding in javascript! Have you ever considered becoming a MediaWiki hacker?
  2. Though, that change appears to introduce 1 new jshint issue -- the page's status is now having warnings. 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 1 character 96: Script URL. - Evidence: addPortletLink('p-tb', 'javascript:{importScript(\'MediaWiki:VisualFileChange.js\'); void(0);}', "Perform batch task", 't-AjaxQuickDeleteOnDemand', null); // [[MediaWiki:VisualFileChange.js]]
  2. ISSUE: line 2 character 77: Script URL. - Evidence: addPortletLink('p-tb', 'javascript:importScript("User:BMacZero/shipcat.js")', 'Create ship category');

Image File: Hierarchy of EffectsEdit

While I created the image, using Word and Photoshop, it is based on ideas taken from the cited source. On review, and after re-reading the original article from 1961, it is clear that the diagram is similar, but not identical to a diagram used in the article. I think that the safest route would be to withdraw my request to reinstate the image.

Incorrect government photo permissionsEdit

Joe, as far as I know all government employee photographs should be public domain. However it appears that the Vienna Embassy photos on Flickr are all tagged "no derivatives". I wanted to pull one from this album but the flickr2commons tool won't do it, probably because of this. Any idea why they are doing this, and do we maybe have a formal way of requesting that they re-tag their albums? - Brianhe (talk) 20:18, 31 October 2016 (UTC)

P.s. I went ahead and uploaded File:Wesner Zeitlhofer and Gürtler.jpg with the PD-DOS tag. But it would still be nice to alert the embassy that their Flickr uploads are incorrectly tagged. - Brianhe (talk) 20:35, 31 October 2016 (UTC)
@Brianhe: They are PD if they are taken by a government employee in the performance of his or her duties. It's not absolutely clear to me that is the case; for example, what if the photo was taken by a volunteer? You might want to contact them and ask for that to be clarified. - Jmabel ! talk 21:09, 31 October 2016 (UTC)
I can do that, then send in the official response for OTRS documentation, I suppose. It seems unlikely the whole photostream is on somebody's off time though. Brianhe (talk) 00:37, 2 November 2016 (UTC)
Agree, but any individual photo could be. - Jmabel ! talk 00:41, 2 November 2016 (UTC)

A consultation regarding Podkarpackie Voivodeship or Subcarpathian VoivodeshipEdit

Since you are an administrator with very extensive experience at Commons and have created, three days ago, Category:Historical Park Blizna, I would like to consult with you regarding the subject mentioned in the above header.

As a result of the August 2011 Wikipedia discussion at en:Talk:Podkarpackie Voivodeship#Requested move, a decision was made to move the main title header "Subcarpathian Voivodeship" to "Podkarpackie Voivodeship".

On Commons, however, the main title header is still the Polish form, Województwo podkarpackie (created 7 January 2009 as Podkarpackie, and moved on 24 April 2014 to Województwo podkarpackie), with Subcarpathian Voivodeship (created 4 January 2009) redirecting to it and Podkarpackie Voivodeship remaining as a redlink.

I just moved Category:Blizna (województwo podkarpackie) to Category:Blizna (Podkarpackie Voivodeship) and adjusted that category within two files (File:Blizna Church.JPG and File:PL-PK Blizna, przydrożna kapliczka 2014-06-21--19-11-50-047 cr.jpg) as well as within the category that you created, (Category:Historical Park Blizna).

As a result of these adjustments, however, your creation, Category:Historical Park Blizna, is now in two categories with competing voivodeship names, Category:Blizna (Podkarpackie Voivodeship) and Category:Museums in Subcarpathian Voivodeship.

Furthermore, Category:Subcarpathian Voivodeship has 30 subcategories, all of which contain the term "Subcarpathian", a term that also appears in a substantial number of files.

Thus, before embarking on any further changes which would have to be fairly extensive, I would like to consult with you whether it would be best to leave well enough alone and move Category:Blizna (Podkarpackie Voivodeship) to Category:Blizna (Subcarpathian Voivodeship) as well as adjust the categories to that form in your creation and the two files, or whether to start numerous moves to bring the name "Subcarpathian" in compliance/harmony with the form used in Wikipedia, "Podkarpackie".

Finally, it should be noted that there are numerous other such inconsistencies: for example, all 25 subcategories in Category:Churches in Subcarpathian Voivodeship by powiat use the Polish form instead of the form which appears in English Wikipedia's main title header. To use the first of these subcategories (Category:Churches in powiat bieszczadzki) as an example, "powiat bieszczadzki" in English Wikipedia is en:Bieszczady County.
Roman Spinner (talk) 21:06, 10 November 2016 (UTC)

@Roman Spinner: I personally would go with "Subcarpathian Voivodeship". Both Subcarpathian and Voivodeship are English words well understood by any English-speaker with an interest in the region. Similarly, unless there is a strong reason not to consider a powiat a "county", I'd go with the English there as well. (By "strong reason" I mean something like that we don't translate the Spanish comarca as "county" even though they are largely analogous, because they Spanish has a distinct word condado that specifically refers to an area historically ruled by a count, and so "county" for comarca is definitely not appropriate.) Certainly we use "county" for the Romanian judeţ.
I have very little Polish, so I can't really judge the Polish-language issues here, but certainly Commons policy is for category names to use any common English words when they exist. - Jmabel ! talk 22:17, 10 November 2016 (UTC)
My appreciation for your advice and, since I am wary of Commons forms differing from those existing on Wikipedia, I will solicit additional input at en:Wikipedia talk:WikiProject Poland. The consensus at en:Talk:Podkarpackie Voivodeship#Requested move was not unanimous and the participation was relatively small, but the form has remained in place since then. The Polish county names at Commons will also need to be moved per your suggestion.

NYC reservoirsEdit

Yes, all of them are entirely within the state. Or at least the reservoirs proper ... as can be seen here, some of the Croton Watershed (the smaller one closer to the city) overlaps into Connecticut.

As I was creating and filling the category, I realized I was glad for that. Years ago there was a proposal, if more Catskill reservoirs could not be built, to work things out with Connecticut and Massachusetts (by land swap, yet!) and dam the Housatonic along its upper reaches to create adequate capacity. Instead, damming the branches of the Delaware and Schoharie Creek became technically and politically feasible, and that's where we are today. Daniel Case (talk) 20:02, 20 December 2016 (UTC)

File:Pro-jallikattu-protest-tn-2017.jpgEdit

Hi Jmabel, I picked your name from the Commons Help Desk. I'm an admin on enwiki. Images and related copyrights aren't my area of strong knowledge. I happened upon File:Pro-jallikattu-protest-tn-2017.jpg, which was labeled as the user's own work, but the middle image is identical to this Financial Express image, which leads me to believe it needs some scrutiny from the community. Sorry to dump this in your lap, and any edification you can provide me would be appreciated. Thanks, Cyphoidbomb (talk) 19:15, 5 February 2017 (UTC)

NeighbourhoodsEdit

Yes, the fact is that at upper level, Neighborhoods is a granchild cat of Political geography which is in turn child of Geography. Thus is not necessarily wrong to place "Neighborhoods in city" as child cat of "Geography of city". -- SERGIO (aka the Blackcat) 12:33, 7 February 2017 (UTC)

Re: Episcopalian Altars, etc.Edit

Hi, Jmabel, I reponded to your post on my talk page, don't know if you saw it. I also wanted to let you know that I intend to make another change to the category Anglican Bishops. I see that there are separate sub-cats for various provinces of the Anglican Communion, including Bishops of the Episcopal Church, Bishops of the Church of Ireland, Bishops of the Church of Uganda, etc. etc., BUT, there is not a sub-cat Bishops of the Church of England. I intend to create that category, and populate it with the various diocesan bishop subcats. Then, I want to move the subcat "suffragan bishops in England" (which is the only entry in the cat Anglican bishops by diocese in England) into the newly created cat and delete its old parent, Anglican bishops by diocese in England, which would then be empty (and which is titled ambiguously anyway, since it never contained all of the Anglican bishops in England). The reason for this is that "suffragan bishops" should be a subcat of "Bishops". Hope that makes sense, let me know if otherwise. Drbones1950 (talk) 19:46, 16 February 2017 (UTC)

  • I assume the relevant list is the red links at Commons:Deletion requests/Vicond's uploads. Probably the simplest thing would be for me to undelete about a dozen at a time for you to download to your machine. It would be greatly appreciated if when I do that, you could do the downloads within 24 hours, then get back to me to let me know to re-delete those and go on to the next batch. Would that work for you? (Y si eres, como sospecho, hispanohablante, puedes escribirme in español, si sea más fácil.) - Jmabel ! talk 18:38, 17 February 2017 (UTC)
*Tengo que decir que usted en alguna forma ha descubierto mi idioma primario.Espero que realmente podamos comunicarnos en Español.

En primer lugar, quería agradecerle sinceramente su gesto.Como le decía anteriormente, mi interés en subir estos dibujos no fue tan solo artistico sino educativo y sobre todo informativo.Sospecho que Cuba es un país del cual los agloparlantes de los Estados Unidos conocen relativamente poco.Mi interés fué abrir una ventana en ese sentido.de cualquier manera le estoy agradecido de poder recuperar mis dibujos que como ya les había dicho los perdí. En efecto LOS DE LAS LETRAS ROJAS son los que ya no están ni en commons ni en mi propiedad.Sería de gran utilidad para mí si usted pudiese recuperar como dice usted estos dibujos al menos, por un día para que yo tuviese la posibilidad de volver a tenerlos de vuelta conmigo.Sin más, sientase libre de hacerlo, yo desde ahora le quedo agradecido.

Amigo, finalmente....ACABO DE SALVAR EL ULTIMO GRUPO.Desconozco como le habrá ido a usted con esta labor, pero para mí a sido una tarea bastante engorrosa y penosa, teniendo en cuenta la cantidad (mas de 100), el ancho de banda y el tipo de conexión que he utilizado y finalmente y no menos importante, el echo de tener que rescatar un trabajo, donado con igual o mayor dificultad, que en algún momento pensé que podía haber resultado de alguna utilidad a Wikipedia.

Quería saber si finalmente ha recibido mi mensaje.De ser así, podrá enviarme ahora los últimos tres archivos que me faltan por salvar: [File:White butterfly.jpg], [File:Relation.jpg] y [File:Resting.jpg]. 

Sin más, quedo despedido por ahora, esperando alguna respuesta que confirme si ha recibido o no mi mensaje.

Overview #2 of updates on Wikimedia movement strategy processEdit

Note: Apologies for cross-posting and sending in English. This message is available for translation on Meta-Wiki.

As we mentioned last month, the Wikimedia movement is beginning a movement-wide strategy discussion, a process which will run throughout 2017. This movement strategy discussion will focus on the future of our movement: where we want to go together, and what we want to achieve.

Regular updates are being sent to the Wikimedia-l mailing list, and posted on Meta-Wiki. Each month, we are sending overviews of these updates to this page as well. Sign up to receive future announcements and monthly highlights of strategy updates on your user talk page.

Here is a overview of the updates that have been sent since our message last month:

More information about the movement strategy is available on the Meta-Wiki 2017 Wikimedia movement strategy portal.

Image spamEdit

Joe, can you think of a reason why a paid job like this would exist? Why would somebody want their specific Commons image injected into an ENWP article? - Bri (talk) 19:26, 20 March 2017 (UTC)

  • Probably increases your cred as a photographer (there's no doubt that the inclusion of my photos in so many Wikipedia article has done so for me). More directly fungible if your images are watermarked, I guess. I personally have never particularly capitalized on this to get paid photography work, but it was really nice to be honored by Docomomo WeWa, and it's certainly given me far better access to photograph things that would not always allow someone to come in and do so. And as I'm sure can be easily verified, I've been very reticent about adding my photos to articles that already have images unless mine are clear improvements; if in doubt, I tend to mention the availability of my photos on the relevant talk page and more often than not leave it to someone else to make the call.
  • But if they get one account to insert a bunch of the another account's images in articles, that's going to come off as a meatpuppet if anyone ever spots it, especially since it sounds like they want someone to do paid editing and not disclose that. - Jmabel ! talk 20:52, 20 March 2017 (UTC)
Thanks. I have watchlisted a few of the dice-related articles and will let you know if I see anything funky. - Bri (talk) 04:01, 21 March 2017 (UTC)

Explicit disclaimer of edit?Edit

Hi, Jmabel. I appreciate your image corrections at File:Map of Pioneer Square Historic District - cleaned and corrected.jpg. Thanks, also, for fixing the "other version" that I had dropped (because of a circular link).

Would you care to add a license or disclaimer to your image corrections? That would help downstream use. When I crop or fix a PD image, I tend to use {{cc0}} for my corrections. Up to you, of course. — hike395 (talk) 03:34, 13 April 2017 (UTC)

File permission errorEdit

File:Ray Hill.jpg has contradictory information -- it says it was uploaded with permission of the subject but it also says the uploader has released it. I'm not sure what tag to use, or if I should just tag it for deletion? - Bri (talk) 20:29, 26 June 2017 (UTC)

  • @Bri: Have you asked the uploader for clarification? They did turn on the email feature. If the uploader is the photographer (as claimed), there is nothing wrong (though maybe redundant) with indicating that you had the subject's permission. The subject would have only personality rights, not copyright. But I'm guessing (from the small resolution and from the fact that this person has no other contributions on Commons) that the uploader is not the photographer. So you could go straight to nominating for deletion, or you could first discuss with the uploader. - Jmabel ! talk 22:36, 26 June 2017 (UTC)

  • A requirement to name the author is the same requirement as the completely acceptable attribution requirement of CC-BY. And a requirement to "respect the work" seems very analogous to personality rights. Yes, we would need the photographer's permission, I did not realize that the uploader was not the photographer, that hadn't been stated. - Jmabel ! talk 14:36, 4 August 2017 (UTC)

Orthodox vs. Oriental Orthodox categoriesEdit

Hello,

Despite the name, Oriental Orthodox is not a subset in any way of something wider that would be called "Orthodoxy". The Oriental Orthodox separated around the 5th century from what is now Catholic and Orthodox Christianity, and are a different faith. When used alone, as is most often the case in Commons, the term "Orthodox" is synonymous with "Eastern Orthodox". I try to correct it any time I find wrongful or duplicate categories, but categories are mostly coherent that way.

You would not confuse Jewish Orthodox or orthodox Marxists with Orthodox Christianity just because they have "orthodox" in their name. Place Clichy 07:13, 2 September 2017 (UTC)

Commons Conference projectEdit

Hello

I'm writing you as one of the most active Commons users right now. Since a while now, the idea of a dedicated Commons conference has been floating around. But since the last Wikimania concrete steps have been taken to actually make it happen next year. If you're interested in participation or maybe willing to help organize the first ever Commons Conference, I invite you to check out the project page and leave your comments; or just show your support for the idea, by signing up.

Cheers,

Thanks for the help about a certain photo...Edit

Hello Jmabel, I come quickly here to say thanks for not loosing your temper about the photo which has missing proof. I see that I will not get around to send a written statement that I am the only copyright holder. But it is so depressing to do that because I have done that already on 17 August with other photos, which had been tagged and got no answer so far... I admit that my temperature rose up again, because except me, no one has the copyright for this new photo. I am new to all this here and I am convinced I do it wrong also the next time. I just do not understand how to do it - with or without Wizard. I would like to upload now a book cover from 1964 and a DVD cover fortwo another pages I am working at. Thank you again for your patience. Best to you Laramie1960 (talk) 12:45, 11 September 2017 (UTC)

  • @Laramie1960: There is nothing here to lose temper over. This happens often. Rights issues are tricky, and Commons is more than typically careful about them.
  • No answer in 3-1/2 weeks is not good, but not uncommon: a small number of people handle the OTRS requests, and they often have a backlog of weeks, especially for things that they can't simply resolve in a minute or so.
  • Again: on the image in question, you say, "I just do not understand how to do it", have you read Commons:OTRS? Is there something in particular there that you don't understand? I can answer specific questions, but "I don't understand" is much to general for anyone to answer.
  • Unless you are the copyright holder for the book cover & DVD cover in question, or have verifiable permission from that person, or the designs are so simple as not to be eligible for copyright, then please don't upload them to Commons. It is quite possible that you can upload them directly to the English-language Wikipedia (etc.) on a fair-use basis if there are articles about them that need them as illustrations. You might get a look at en:Wikipedia:Plain_and_simple_non-free_content_guide and en:Wikipedia:Non-free_content#Images; all of this applies to the English-language Wikipedia; no non-free images are acceptable on Commons.
  • On the English-language Wikipedia you would want to use en:Template:Non-free use rationale book cover and en:Template:Non-free use rationale album cover, respectively. - Jmabel ! talk 15:18, 11 September 2017 (UTC)

Hello Jmabel, I am sorry to come only now to thank you for your answer and helpful suggestions. I admit I had completely forgotten to answer you because for days I was concerned about getting it right with that photo. I followed your suggestion and wrote to OTRS. I did at first not understand how to do it, and you may know how it is when something seems alien ;-) They were very nice ant OTRS and helpful and the photo can now stay where it is. I am very happy about that. Also I am getting now answer to that first Ticket. I am afraid that for the photo in the article, that French newspaper will never answer me. I called Le Figaro today and had to talk on the answering machine! I wrote then a message. I gave them all the necessary information, because I have that article myself. It is just that I would have loved to add that photo, showing the author in her garden, writing. Thanks again for your help, kind Regards Laramie1960 (talk) 16:50, 14 September 2017 (UTC)

Thanks...iv uploaded it at Jmabel Chidinma0025 (talk) 12:17, 27 November 2017 (UTC)

Appreciation for asking the right questionsEdit

Thanks for asking the right questions at Commons:Village pump § Requiring reuploads (and revdel) of previously violated freely licensed works?. It has helped a lot to express my point. 2001:2003:54FA:2751:0:0:0:1 05:40, 12 September 2017 (UTC)

  • You are very welcome. - Jmabel ! talk 14:43, 12 September 2017 (UTC)

ultima_foto_caricata_no_copiryghtEdit

Concerning this discussion of the photo that the questioner claimed to have taken with himself in it: Yes, you're quite right. I find it not impossible, but quite unlikely that they took it themself with a shutter delay. And I apologize

  1. for my delay here. I don't visit the Commons that often and only just now got notification of your reply, too late for me to answer you in the now-archived discussion.
  2. for my original failure to look at the pic before commenting on it.

Book cover on CommonsEdit

File:Coffee Melts Bars by Rabbi Fishel Jacobs.jpg was uploaded by a person claiming to be the author of the book. However the Amazon preview shows that it was outsourced to "Pradeep Cover Design". What should be done? I know that book covers don't usually belong here. The same person uploaded two other book covers claiming authorship which seems ... unlikely for one of them. Bri (talk) 23:41, 12 September 2017 (UTC)

  • If it had prior publication that was not under the same free license (or where we can't verify), they need to go through OTRS even if it is the same person. Assuming the book is self-published, imaginably there could still be an issue if the rights weren't correctly signed over by the cover designer (remember that publishers do usually get copyrights signed over), but I think the OTRS people would follow up on what they need if they think there is doubt about that. - Jmabel ! talk 23:57, 12 September 2017 (UTC)

A barnstar for you!Edit

  The Copyright Watcher Barnstar
Hello Jmabel,

I think I like to award you with this barnstar. You put me in the right direction, even if I was at first totally annoyed that the photo was rejected. I learned a lot about copyrights. Thanks again, best to you. Laramie1960 (talk) 16:53, 14 September 2017 (UTC)

Another copyright qEdit

Hi again Joe! I'm helping a newer editor on ENWP with her third DYK and wanted to see if we could find a PD image for the article. I think I found an eligible one here. If you look at the front and the back of the postcard there's no copyright date. Due to the birth date of the animal (1958) and the owner (1924), I don't think it's possible it was taken as late as 1978. Do you think it would pass muster as a PD upload to Commons on this basis alone? We could do more research to see if we can find when the horse had sired not more than 13 champions, but that may be a bridge too far for the DYK. It died in 1985 so I could also see if Dukane Press ever applied to the LOC for copyright after issuance of the postcard. Bri (talk) 23:32, 3 October 2017 (UTC)

  • I think that's probably fine, but someone else might disagree. Maybe take the question to Commons:Village pump/Copyright? - Jmabel ! talk 23:35, 3 October 2017 (UTC)
    • Thanks. In the meantime I've scanned the Catalog of Copyright Entries for nearly every year between 1967 and 1978, and Dukane Press never registered a single thing. Bri (talk) 23:51, 3 October 2017 (UTC)

1959 Plymouth Special Deluxe Convertible?Edit

Your images of an alleged "1959 Plymouth Special Deluxe Convertible," are if anything of a 1949 Plymouth Special Deluxe Convertible. I just thought you should know that. ----DanTD (talk) 13:49, 10 October 2017 (UTC)

  • You're right. I misread the note attached to the dash (which fortunately I photographed and could check). - Jmabel ! talk 15:45, 10 October 2017 (UTC)

Two new people have been hired for the Structured Data on Commons team. We are now complete! :-)

  • Ramsey Isler is the new Product Manager of the Multimedia team.
  • Pamela Drouin was hired as User Interface Designer. She works at the Multimedia team as well, and her work will focus on the Structured Commons project.
Partners and allies
  • We are still welcoming (more) staff from GLAMs (Galleries, Libraries, Archives and Museums) to become part of our long-term focus group (phabricator task T174134). You will be kept in the loop of the project, and receive regular small surveys and requests for feedback. Get in touch with Sandra if you're interested - your input in helping to shape this project is highly valued!
Research

Design research is ongoing.

  • Jonathan Morgan and Niharika Ved have held interviews with various GLAM staff about their batch upload workflows and will finish and report on these in this quarter. (phabricator task T159495)
  • At this moment, there is also an online survey for GLAM staff, Wikimedians in Residence, and GLAM volunteers who upload media collections to Wikimedia Commons. The results will be used to understand how we can improve this experience. (phabricator task T175188)
  • Upcoming: interviews with Wikimedia volunteers who curate media on Commons (including tool developers), talking about activities and workflows. (phabricator task T175185)
Development

In Autumn 2017, the Structured Commons development team works on the following major tasks (see also the quarterly goals for the team):

  • Getting Multi-Content Revisions sufficiently ready, so that the Multimedia and Search Platform teams can start using it to test and prototype things.
  • Determine metrics and metrics baseline for Commons (phabricator task T174519).
  • The multimedia team at WMF is gaining expertise in Wikibase, and unblocking further development for Structured Commons, by completing the MediaInfo extension for Wikibase.
Stay up to date!

Warmly, your community liaison, SandraF (WMF) (talk)

On recent village pumpEdit

I think you missed that all those photos are not the own work of uploader as they appear on other websites, or contain derivative works. I am nominating. Ellin Beltz (talk) 17:25, 4 November 2017 (UTC)

  • Feel free. I was only addressing the question raised, that they were self-promotional. The person who posted didn't say anything about them being possible copyright violations. - Jmabel ! talk 17:39, 4 November 2017 (UTC)

Taken onEdit

Hello Jmabel. There was a long discussion about this category and the consensus was that if there were more than ten files in the 'Taken on' category that it is desirable to place files in a country specific category to reduce the size of the specific day category, But this seems to be a guide line and not a community standard now, so I would say either way is correct.

File:Solstice Parade 2013 - 097 (9146272003).jpgEdit

  File:Solstice Parade 2013 - 097 (9146272003).jpg has been listed at Commons:Deletion requests so that the community can discuss whether it should be kept or not. We would appreciate it if you could go to voice your opinion about this at its entry.

If you created this file, please note that the fact that it has been proposed for deletion does not necessarily mean that we do not value your kind contribution. It simply means that one person believes that there is some specific problem with it, such as a copyright issue.
Please remember to respond to and – if appropriate – contradict the arguments supporting deletion. Arguments which focus on the nominator will not affect the result of the nomination. Thank you!

copyrightEdit

someone has asked me for copyright info even though the image is not complex — Preceding unsigned comment added by Uby8776 (talk • contribs) 13:08, 26 November 2017 (UTC)

  • @Uby8776: I have no idea what image you are talking about here. Please give me some context. - Jmabel ! talk 17:41, 26 November 2017 (UTC)
(talk page stalker) Presumably the no-source tag on File:Inceldom_flag.png. Uby8776, even if the design is not copyrightable (which depends on the country of origin), it‘s important for users to know where it came from. If you created the image yourself you can say so, but it would still be good to link to somewhere it‘s identified or shown in use as something other than a personal, proposed or fictional flag (of which there are plenty here).—Odysseus1479 (talk) 18:25, 26 November 2017 (UTC)
