MapsEdit

In the Perkins book, there are two maps. (1,2) Are they of use? Upload them? If so, please create an image description page for them and I will upload like the rest. – JBarta (talk) 18:07, 23 August 2013 (UTC)

William C. Parke signatureEdit

Hi KAVEBEAR,

I vectorized the signature you requested at Commons:Graphic Lab/Illustration workshop#William C. Parke signature. Is everything all right and can we consider the request as resolved?

Could you please check it? Thanks in advance.--Carnby (talk) 22:07, 11 March 2014 (UTC)

RedirectsEdit

Please stop tagging redirects from names that have been in use for years for speedy deletion, those are not unnecessary. --Didym (talk) 16:44, 6 June 2015 (UTC)

BotsEdit


You are receiving this message because a technical change may affect a bot, gadget, or user script you have been using. The breaking change involves API calls. This change has been planned for two years. The WMF will start making this change on 30 June 2015. A partial list of affected bots can be seen here: https://lists.wikimedia.org/pipermail/wikitech-l/2015-June/081931.html This includes all bots that are using pywikibot compat. Some of these bots have already been fixed. However, if you write user scripts or operate a bot that uses the API, then you should check your code, to make sure that it will not break.

What, exactly, is breaking? The "default continuation mode" for action=query requests to api.php will be changing to be easier for new coders to use correctly. To find out whether your script or bot may be affected, then search the source code (including any frameworks or libraries) for the string "query-continue". If that is not present, then the script or bot is not affected. In a few cases, the code will be present but not used. In that case, the script or bot will continue working.

This change will be part of 1.26wmf12. It will be deployed to test wikis (including mediawiki.org) on 30 June, to non-Wikipedias (such as Wiktionary) on 1 July, and to all Wikipedias on 2 July 2015.

If your bot or script is receiving the warning about this upcoming change (as seen at https://www.mediawiki.org/w/api.php?action=query&list=allpages ), it's time to fix your code!

Either of the above solutions may be tested immediately, you'll know it works because you stop seeing the warning.

Do you need help with your own bot or script? Ask questions in e-mail on the mediawiki-api or wikitech-l mailing lists. Volunteers at m:Tech or w:en:WP:Village pump (technical) or w:en:Wikipedia:Bot owners' noticeboard may also be able to help you.

Are you using someone else's gadgets or user scripts? Most scripts are not affected. To find out if a script you use needs to be updated, then post a note at the discussion page for the gadget or the talk page of the user who originally made the script.

Benjamin Pitman (Hawaii), undatedEdit

Hallo KAVEBEAR, why did you change your mind regarding above image? First with frame and now without? I am a little bit irritated. Regards --Ras67 (talk) 22:47, 1 November 2015 (UTC)

Speedy delete tagsEdit

These tags should not be removed. You may replace them with a regular tag if you wish because they generally give a 7 day period so that you may add the required information. However, you must state where this digital image was acquired from. Just saying where the painting is not the correct, essential information.--Mark Miller (talk) 03:24, 12 December 2015 (UTC)

A cup of coffee for you!Edit

  You probably need a few to keep to keep up with finals! In case I don't talk to you, have a safe trip and take lots of photos! ;-) Hedwig in Washington (mail?) 04:47, 12 December 2015 (UTC)
Thank you. I don't really know why I get really riled up with this particular editor but every year around this time it seems to occur. I've been working way too hard on this particular subject to just let it go or turn a blind eye as I've been doing with a lot of his antics. --KAVEBEAR (talk) 04:49, 12 December 2015 (UTC)
Let it go. I have finally figured out why you have such a problem with me but I am not going to give out off Wikipedia information. Perhaps others will take time to look into the situation and you. Coffee is the last thing you need. Try some chamomile tea.--Mark Miller (talk) 04:42, 14 December 2015 (UTC)

Old USCO RecordsEdit

"Wasn't aware of that. I used this search engine http://cocatalog.loc.gov/cgi-bin/Pwebrecon.cgi?DB=local&PAGE=First but have since realized the records are way too recent.

source of image?Edit

Hi Kavebear, I have a question regarding this image. The Google Books source that you give does not show this image or only a tiny fraction of it, because it was obviously scanned folded together. Is this your own scan out of the book? Background of my question is that also the map beside page 32 (which I am looking for) is not shown properly in the book. Greetings,--Ratzer (talk) 07:48, 16 November 2016 (UTC)

Yeah I scanned it after loaning it through interlibrary loan. I don't have access to it anymore though.--KAVEBEAR (talk) 08:13, 16 November 2016 (UTC)

Reverting cropsEdit

I noticed you've been reverting some crops for images in the clean-up category Category:Images with borders. As long as these files have the templates saying they need cropping, it's going to be a continual, endless cycle of cropping and reverting, which is counter-productive for everyone. That category link gives more information about the maintenance cropping categories and templates that can be used. Sweet kate (talk) 20:58, 4 March 2017 (UTC)

Is there a more specific template to use because my problems is only with the crops that are done improperly, cropping more than is necessary. I mean I could have done the crop myself if I was not wanting some help getting it down to the minute point where nothing except unnecessary frames are lost. --KAVEBEAR (talk) 22:34, 4 March 2017 (UTC)

RevertingEdit

Hello.Why did you retreat my cropping?Do you want to crop while retaining the text?--ديفيد عادل وهبة خليل 2 (talk) 07:39, 29 March 2017 (UTC)

I wanted a lossless crop. You removed the parts of the image backgrounds for no reason. Please check how other users perform these crops (see File:Kalakaua (PP-96-15-003).jpg for your version I reverted because it was not done right and the other version which another user did and I retained because I was satisfied with the result). I only want the page in the background cropped. I don't ever want any part of the image to be cropped. Whenever you address the images I've tag in the future, please keep this in mind or refrain from editing them. Thanks, --KAVEBEAR (talk) 07:49, 29 March 2017 (UTC)
