Hi Kaldari, I wonder about the french origin, mustnot it be from the netherlands. Greetings––Oursana (talk) 09:29, 10 April 2013 (UTC)

Poster of flowersEdit

Hi Kaldari,

I have just used one of your excellente pictures to make a poster of white flowers: File:White flowers b.jpg. It is one of the best in the bunch... Alvesgaspar (talk) 22:03, 20 April 2013 (UTC)

Nashville picture for my homepage?Edit

Hi Kaldari,

I wanted to verify (FAQ writes, that I should), that I can use your picture from Nashville

 
Nashville skyline 2009

for my homepage. Can I use it as a picture in the header? (It's about my country [and soul] music)

Thanks in advance.

Kind regards Josh T. Cute

Sure you can use it all you want. I would prefer to not be credited anywhere. Thanks. Kaldari (talk) 07:02, 21 April 2013 (UTC)

Okay. Thx again :) (I think, I'm commited to relate to the copyright holder under german law) Josh T. Cute

a heads-upEdit

In 2011 you participated in Commons:Administrators/Requests/Jcb_(de-adminship 2). That discussion ended with User:Jcb losing his administrator privileges.

This note is to inform you that User:Odder proposed Jcb have unconconditional access to administrator privileges restored.

Commons:Administrators/Requests/Jcb (readmin) is scheduled to close on May 20th.

PhidippusEdit

check out : http://salticidae.org/salticid/diagnost/phidippu/cardi-ph.htm

I think the spider picture you identified as Phidippus johnsoni is actually P. cardinalis. Patrick Edwin Moran (talk) 04:38, 20 May 2013 (UTC) I think I was wrong, anyway. I'll find that picture again. I've raised a couple of P. johnsoni and I don't think the one of yours I was looking at looks right, but the one I found had the wrong carapace color. I'm blind, obviously. Patrick Edwin Moran (talk) 05:16, 20 May 2013 (UTC)

Oddly I never noticed before. All the P. johnsoni that I have seen have lacked the spots, but Edwards says that most specimens have the spots. My mistake.Patrick Edwin Moran (talk) 12:06, 20 May 2013 (UTC)

Dealing with the URAAEdit

Hi, I see from your posts at Commons talk:URAA-restored copyrights that you are interested in tackling the problems that the URAA causes us here on Commons. I've started a new policy that might help, at Commons:Hosting of content released to the public domain globally. Could you have a look, and also add your thoughts to the talk page? I hope you will support it! --MichaelMaggs (talk) 10:40, 5 January 2014 (UTC)

hockey photos from FlickrEdit

Hi! I uploaded a series of hockey photos from Flickr, but a bot seems to be unable to find them in the gallery :(. If you could approve them, I would be most grateful.

Hawkeye7 (talk) 21:37, 16 June 2014 (UTC)

@Hawkeye7: The problem is that the file pages don't link directly to the images on Flickr, just to the photoset. If you change the links on the file pages, the bot should be able to approve all of them. Kaldari (talk) 21:52, 16 June 2014 (UTC)

Attribution for imageEdit

Dear Sir,

I would like to use your image of the "Twin-spotted Spiny Lizard (Sceloporus magister) in Phoenix, Arizona" available at https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File%3ASceloporus_magister_Phoenix.jpg , in an extension-outreach publication related to pests in community environments. This publication is purely for educational purposes and has no commercial interests whatsoever.

However, the suggested attribution format, "By Kaldari (Own work) [Public domain], via Wikimedia Commons", is very different from the style I will be following for other pictures in my publication, which will most likely be much shorter and in the format:

"Photo by Abc Defghijk", or "Photo by Abc Defghijk, Lmnopqr.org".

Therefore for the sake of consistency, kindly let me know whether I may cite the images in the above formats, and if so, what name/affiliation should I use.

Thank you! Sincerely, Shaku

Looking for connections to the Honolulu Museum of ArtEdit

Aloha! I am guessing that you know someone from the Honolulu Museum of Art or an editor who works with them, from the bot that you ran that uploaded images from HMA. I used to live on Oahu, & someone from the Smithsonian asked me if I know of any Wikipedia or Wikimedia contacts in Honolulu. I am including below what I have been posting on the talk pages of Wikipedians in Hawaii. Peaceray (talk) 19:58, 2 August 2015 (UTC)

Looking for editors to help with an Asian Pacific American edit-a-thon in HonoluluEdit


On Oahu? Edit Wikipedia or Wikimedia sister projects? You are invited to help the Smithsonian Asian Pacific American Center with an Asian Pacific American edit-a-thon in Honolulu this September.
 

Aloha!

Last summer I moved to the Seattle area after 14 years in Kailua on Oahu. I immediately fell in with the Cascadia Wikimedians User Group as it formed, joined its board and became its first president as well as the GLAM representative for Washington State.

Recently, Adriel Luis, Curator (Digital & Emerging Media) at the Smithsonian Asian Pacific American Center, contacted me about setting up an edit-a-thon like the previous Wikipedia APA edit-a-thon. In addition to discussing one for Seattle, he wrote:

"It's awesome to learn about your past in Honolulu - I'm actually going to be there for another SmithsonianAPA project mid September, and thinking that this could be an opportunity to do an event there as well! I have lots of contacts with UH and the museums, but do you know of any contacts on the Wikimedia side out there?"

As I was working two jobs while I lived on Oahu, I did not have the opportunity to meet your or any other Wikipedians at the time. Hence, the reason why I am contacting you now.

If you would like to help, please contact me through one of these methods:


Mahalo,

De-adminship warningEdit

This talk page in other languages:

Dear Kaldari, I am writing to inform you that you are in danger of losing your adminship on Commons because of inactivity.

If you want to keep your adminship, you need both to sign at Commons:Administrators/Inactivity section/Aug-Sep 2015 within 30 days of today's date, and also to make at least five further admin actions in the following six months. Anyone who does not do so will automatically lose administrator rights.

You can read the de-admin policy at Commons:Administrators/De-adminship.

Re: Jim MorrisonEdit

There were some very detailed arguments presented at Commons:Deletion requests/File:Jim Morrison 1968.jpg, but you did not offer any explanation as to why you believed those arguments were valid or invalid. Carl presented 3 different US court cases showing that, according to US jurisprudence, derivative copyright protects only the new material contained in the derivative work, not the matter derived from the underlying work. Do you disagree with that assessment? If so, could you explain why? Kaldari (talk) 05:14, 24 September 2015 (UTC)

Also, you should be aware that Joel Brodsky's estate is actively claiming copyright over this image: http://www.tmetta.com/brodsky.html, thus keeping this image on Commons may be putting the uploader and reusers at legal and financial risk. Kaldari (talk) 05:32, 24 September 2015 (UTC)
Having accepted your appeal, next time, please avoid moving a file to be deleted soon, and avoid editing your post to my talk page too frequently in a short time. I had problems reading your post and deleting your questioned file.--Jusjih (talk) 19:42, 24 September 2015 (UTC)
Thanks. Sorry for the trouble. Kaldari (talk) 20:04, 24 September 2015 (UTC)
I could claim copyright over an image of Jimi Hendrix. Doesn't make me the actual copyright holder. How exactly could they own a photograph copyrighted to 2006 when Jim Morrison actually died in 1971? Even if Brodsky took the photograph in the 1960s or whenever it was, proof was presented at the IFD that there was no registration for the photo for either Brodsky or Elektra Records. Of course Brodsky is going to claim copyright on it as it's probably a good source of income. It's a bullshit argument.Dr. Blofeld (talk) 13:52, 25 September 2015 (UTC)
  • I agree. A copyright claim on a public domain work is clearly invalid. Unless there's something that multiple editors missed during the two deletion reviews (a registration or renewal), I don't see how the claim can hold water. — Chris Woodrich (talk) 14:10, 25 September 2015 (UTC)
  • A supposed 2006 copyright claim of someone who died in 1971? Something is obviously screwy with that, and with yet another deletion on dubious grounds. - SchroCat (talk) 14:44, 25 September 2015 (UTC)
As has been explained several times, no copyright registration was necessary since the photo was first published after 1963. If anyone can provide an example of this photograph (not a derivative work) being published without a copyright notice before 1978 (as the license tag claimed), I'll be very happy to undelete it myself. As it stands, there is simply no evidence that this photograph is public domain, but there is evidence that someone is actively claiming copyright over it (even if the year is bogus). Kaldari (talk) 15:51, 25 September 2015 (UTC)

Hello! Your bot has been listed at Commons:Bots/Requests/de-flag 4 as being inactive for over two years.

File:Gulfstream Park's giant sculpture - Pegasus slaying a dragon.jpgEdit

I came across this image today which you uploaded. Problem; I believe it's copyrighted. There is no freedom of panorama in the United States for three dimensional works of art. See Commons:Freedom_of_panorama#United_States. The statue was recently constructed, and thus automatically enjoys copyright protections whether so labeled, registered, or not. Given that its license is incompatible with Commons and being that you're an admin, would you be so kind as to delete the image? Thanks, --Hammersoft (talk) 13:27, 20 October 2016 (UTC)

@Hammersoft: Sadly, I think you're right. I'll delete it. Kaldari (talk) 23:26, 20 October 2016 (UTC)

Carl Reiner photoEdit

File:Carl Reiner 1960 still.jpg had been discussed at the Village Pump before uploading. --Light show (talk) 04:17, 28 December 2016 (UTC)

@Light show: The license you put on the image said it was published "without a copyright notice", which was clearly not true. I'll undelete the image, but please be sure to put the correct license tag on images in the future and link to any discussions about them. Kaldari (talk) 04:21, 28 December 2016 (UTC)

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

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

Dear Kaldari,

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.

Thanks,
--Wikimedia Commons Picture of the Year committee 08:42, 16 April 2017 (UTC)

Nephilidae demotionEdit

I've been making fixes on the English Wikipedia for the demotion of the spider family Nephilidae to the subfamily Nephilinae, implicitly accepted by the World Spider Catalog since the genera now appear in Araneidae. Here, I created Category:Nephilinae and re-categorized appropriately, leaving a category redirect at Category:Nephilidae. I hope that was the right thing to do. There are two other categories that need fixing: Category:Videos of Nephilidae and Category:Unidentified Nephilidae, which I'm not sure how to handle. Can you please check what I've done and deal with anything else? I'm far from experienced in Commons editing. Peter coxhead (talk) 07:55, 15 May 2017 (UTC)

abuse filter syntax questionEdit

Quick question. Is there the ability to combine contains_any and regex. I am more interested in managing case sensitivity for file extensions. Thanks for any help and my inability to work it out myself.  — billinghurst sDrewth 00:05, 15 September 2017 (UTC)

@Billinghurst: I don't believe there's any way to combine contains_any and regex, but I also can't think of any situations where you would use contains_any that couldn't be handled by a regex instead. What specific problem are you trying to solve? Kaldari (talk) 00:18, 15 September 2017 (UTC)
At enWS we have a problematic person uploading video files. Started as only webm, though starting to spread their wings. For many users unfamiliar with regex, I find "contains_any" easiest for admins to understand and to which to add. So maybe I will try this contains_any(lcase(article_text), ".webm", ".flac", ".ogg")  — billinghurst sDrewth 01:50, 15 September 2017 (UTC)

For example, you can tag it with {{self|GFDL|cc-by-sa-all}} to release it under the multi-license GFDL plus Creative Commons Attribution-ShareAlike All-version license or you can tag it with {{PD-self}} to release it into the public domain. (See Commons:Copyright tags for the full list of license tags that you can use.)

If you did not create the file yourself or if it is a derivative of another work that is possibly subject to copyright protection, then you must specify where you found it (e.g. usually a link to the web page where you got it), you must provide proof that it has a license that is acceptable for Commons (e.g. usually a link to the terms of use for content from that page), and you must add an appropriate license tag. If you did not create the file yourself and the specific source and license information is not available on the web, you must obtain permission through the OTRS system and follow the procedure described there.

Note that any unsourced or improperly licensed files will be deleted one week after they have been marked as lacking proper information, as described in criteria for deletion. If you have uploaded other files, please confirm that you have provided the proper information for those files, too. If you have any questions about licenses please ask at Commons:Village pump/Copyright or see our help pages. Thank you.

Extended uploadersEdit

Hi Kaldari, Over at Commons:Extended uploaders it said "'''Extended uploaders''' is a special [[<tvar|mw1>:mw:Special:MyLangauge/Help:User rights and groups</>|user group]] for registered Commons users",
However when I clicked on "user group" it took me to a MW page however it says "No such special page" so I removed the "Special:MyLangauge/" part however I'm not sure if this was the correct thing to do so figured I'd leave a message incase you might understand it all and can perhaps fix it,
Thanks, –Davey2010Talk 17:15, 1 December 2017 (UTC)

Request to revise map for Cannabis lawsEdit

Hi Kaldari, the article for world cannabis laws has included a map . The colour for norway is wrong, as they have decriminalised all drugs as of December 2017.
I don't think I have the correct permissions to edit it myself as my Wikipedia account is only a couple hours old, so I am asking if you could change the colour of Norway to orange (illegal, decriminalised).
I will include two links, first the one to the Commons site where the particular map file is (the one I'd like you to change), and another one where I have changed the colour of Norway correctly.

Round 2 of Picture of the Year 2017 is open!Edit

You are receiving this message because you voted in R1 of the 2017 Picture of the Year contest, but not yet in R2.

Dear Kaldari,

Wikimedia Commons is happy to announce that the second round of the 2017 Picture of the Year competition is now open. This year will be the twelfth 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 (2017) 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 2 from each sub-category.

In the final round, you may vote for a maximum of three images. The image with the most votes will become the Picture of the Year 2017.

Round 2 will end on 22 July 2018, 23:59 UTC.

Click here to vote now!

Thanks,
the Wikimedia Commons Picture of the Year committee 11:33, 17 July 2018 (UTC)

Walters MuseumEdit

Ryan, You did the upload of Walters Museum files. I wonder if you still have the metadata laying around somewhere so we could move that data to Wikidata. It looks like very few artworks from Walters Museum are on Wikidata. Alternative approach would be to reach out to User:Dylan k who seem to be still at Walters Museum, to get fresh copy of the data. Any thoughts? --Jarekt (talk) 14:04, 14 November 2018 (UTC)

Jarekt, I'm willing to help with a fresh copy of the data, and may also have the original metadata laying around. How can I help? — Preceding unsigned comment added by Dylan k (talk • contribs) 18:23, 14 November 2018 (UTC)

Your best shot 2018Edit

Dear member of the Commons Photographers User Group,

I'm wishing you all the best for the New Year and I hope you're going to have many memorable photo opportunities in 2019. With 2018 coming to an end, it's time to look back at the past 12 months. I'm curious – what would you consider your best shot of 2018 and why? I invite you to share your image and your thoughts in order to provide others with the opportunity to celebrate, learn, and enjoy:

templatedataEdit

He Kaldari, i'm just wondering about the changes on {{Information}} regarding templatedata you made. What triggered this, and what specifically was 'a mess' ? —TheDJ (talkcontribs) 10:20, 20 May 2019 (UTC)

@TheDJ: The main problems were super long parameter descriptions, WikiText in the descriptions (which ends up being output as escaped HTML), no examples, and no format specified. Of these, all of them could have been fixed within TemplateBox except for the missing format. Rather than messing with the TemplateBox mess, I though it would be easier and clearer to just separate the TemplateData out. Plus that was the only way to specify the format, which needed to be set to 'block' (since otherwise the template defaulted to inline). I think Rillke started working on adding format support to Module:TemplateBox, but it hasn't been added yet. I'm fine with switching back to TemplateBox once that is done if people think it makes more sense. Kaldari (talk) 14:45, 20 May 2019 (UTC)
Oh and the thing that triggered me changing it was seeing the following description of the "author" parameter in the TemplateWizard interface:

Original author of the file; where appropriate, use {{Creator:Name Surname}}. If the work is derived from or depicts works by someone other than the author, the author of the original work should also be mentioned. For example, for a photograph of a sculpture, make a mention of both the sculptor and the photographer. For vectorizing works, use the template {| | style="padding:0 4px;background-color:#CCF;width:12%" | Original: | style="width:38%" | <span lang="en">Unknown</span> | style="padding:0 4px;background-color:#CCF;width:12%" | Vector: | style="width:38%" | [[:User:test|test]] |}. If the author has submitted an OTRS ticket but prefers not to disclose his/her name, enter the word "Confidential". This field should ''not'' be used to specify the name of the person who is the scanner, finder, or uploader of the image; these things do not make them the author.

I changed it to just: "Original author of the file; where appropriate, use {{Creator:Name Surname}}." Kaldari (talk) 14:57, 20 May 2019 (UTC)
ping @Multichill: —TheDJ (talkcontribs) 15:24, 20 May 2019 (UTC)
@TheDJ: I just added format support to Module:TemplateBox, which seems to be working. TemplateBox still doesn't seem to support "suggested" as a general parameter status though. Maybe someone could investigate that. Basically, no one has updated the TemplateBox module in 5 years, so it's just outdated. Kaldari (talk) 15:28, 20 May 2019 (UTC)

thanks and questionEdit

Hello there, I saw you uploaded File:Wikitongues Jerry speaking Cherokee.mp3. Thank you. I've placed that file and the video of en:w:Jeremiah Wolfe on his Wikipedia article. I found them both at Category:Cherokee language. I was wondering about getting an audio file for en:w:Myrtle Driver Johnson. I quote her from this creative commons YouTube video. She speaks starting at 21'18" and ends at 21'43". How would one go about getting that audio uploaded to commons? Many thanks. Biosthmors (talk) 20:10, 9 July 2019 (UTC)

Code issues in User:Kaldari/inat2commons.jsEdit

Hi Kaldari, 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:Kaldari/inat2commons.js. Glad to see you coding in javascript! Have you ever considered becoming a MediaWiki hacker?
  2. Though, that change appears to introduce 7 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 or cmb-opt-out anywhere on your your global user page on Meta. Good luck at Wikimedia Commons and happy hacking!

Google Code-In 2019 is coming - please mentor some documentation tasks!Edit

Hello,

Google Code-In, Google-organized contest in which the Wikimedia Foundation participates, starts in a few weeks. This contest is about taking high school students into the world of opensource. I'm sending you this message because you recently edited a documentation page at Wikimedia Commons.

I would like to ask you to take part in Google Code-In as a mentor. That would mean to prepare at least one task (it can be documentation related, or something else - the other categories are Code, Design, Quality Assurance and Outreach) for the participants, and help the student to complete it. Please sign up at the contest page and send us your Google account address to google-code-in-admins@lists.wikimedia.org, so we can invite you in!

From my own experience, Google Code-In can be fun, you can make several new friends, attract new people to your wiki and make them part of your community.

If you have any questions, please let us know at google-code-in-admins@lists.wikimedia.org.

Thank you!

MetadataEdit

Hi! I saw somewhere you fixed FAL template that had problems with missing meta data. Perhaps you can help me on lb.wiki?

I would like to empty lb:Kategorie:Fichieren ouni maschinneliesbar Lizenz and the other categories like it.

To do so I need to fix metadata per m: File metadata cleanup drive/How to fix metadata but I could use a little help.

I asked for help at m:Talk:File_metadata_cleanup_drive/How_to_fix_metadata#lb.wiki. If you know how and have a little time it would be nice if you could have a look.

Also I wonder if text like this "<div id="Schabloun_Bild-PD-al>" is needed on the license templates. You can see them all on lb:Kategorie:Schabloune fir Billerlizenzen but if someone help me fix a few I can do the rest. --MGA73 (talk) 11:10, 9 February 2020 (UTC)

DalcaEdit

I asked to delete File:Dalca segun Lothrop, S. K. (1932).png because it was considered a not a simple draw as I thought. I uploaded File:Dalca.svg for replace. Thanks for your contrib. --Juan Villalobos (talk) 12:41, 5 April 2020 (UTC)

About "Commons:Wikimedia OTRS release generator needs more translations"Edit

Hi, I'm trying to create a Portuguese version of MediaWiki:Relgen.js/text, but I don't know where to "put" it. We don't have a "sandbox" here and I can't create one. What should I do? Regards--SirEdimon (talk) 04:43, 17 April 2020 (UTC)

@SirEdimon: You can just create it as a subpage of your user page: User:SirEdimon/Relgentext.js. Once it's done, let me know and I can move it into the proper place. Kaldari (talk) 15:40, 17 April 2020 (UTC)
I created it, but now I have several questions: 1 - Once published can I, eventually, edit it to correct some eventual errors? 2 - How can I see it "working" to evaluate the quality of the translation? 3 - I don't know if we, pt.wiki, have some specific e-mail to receive releases via OTRS, so I left the "general" e-mail. 4 - I translated "Jane Doe" and "Jane Doe" (a general name used when the true name of a person is unknown). I never heard the expression "Ace Inc.", but I assumed that it has the same use as "Jane Doe" and "Jane Doe" (used when the true name of a company is unknown). 5 - About the Commons:Freedom of panorama, I didn't adapt it to the Brazilian and Portuguese context because I wasn't sure (but it seems that both countries have the same policy, authorizing photographies of buildings, architecture, and sculptures). I, therefore, only translated the text about the United States, but I can't fix this if you give me more information. 6 - In "$1, am", I just translated "$1, sou", I hope it's fine. Thanks for your patience. If anything needs to be fixed or improved please let me know. Regards--SirEdimon (talk) 00:08, 18 April 2020 (UTC)
@SirEdimon: Question answers:
  1. No, but if you tell me what to change, I can change it for you.
  2. If your interface language is set to Portuguese in your preferences, you should see the Portuguese interface after I move it into place and the JavaScript cache clears (which could take a few days).
  3. I'm no longer an OTRS member, so I can't answer that. Perhaps AlvaroMolina could though.
  4. That's perfect.
  5. That sounds good. It looks like Portugal and Brazil both allow Freedom of Panorama, so no clarification about those countries should be needed.
  6. That is correct. The sentence is "I, John Doe, am the creator..."
Thanks for your work on this. As soon as we hear back from AlvaroMolina, I'll move it. Kaldari (talk) 00:35, 18 April 2020 (UTC)
About the point 5, should we take out "Nos Estados Unidos, apenas obras arquitetônicas estão isentas dessa exigência" or should we replace it with something about the Brazil/Portugal context or, even, should we let it as it's now?--SirEdimon (talk) 01:27, 18 April 2020 (UTC)
@SirEdimon, Kaldari: Hi, most languages that are relatively well known have their own OTRS queue to receive permissions, in the case of the Portuguese, there are the emails permissions-pt wikimedia.org and permissions-commons-pt wikimedia.org. Looking at the standards that other translations of that page have followed (e.g.: MediaWiki:Relgen.js/i18n/it), you should put the "permissions-pt" email (in "photosubmission" I think there is no queue for the Portuguese version, so it should be kept photosubmission wikimedia.org). Regards. —AlvaroMolina ( - ) 01:40, 18 April 2020 (UTC)
@SirEdimon: I've changed the email address per AlvaroMolina feedback above and also removed the sentence about the United States per your suggestion. I've now moved the page to the proper title, so it should start working soon. Kaldari (talk) 02:36, 18 April 2020 (UTC)
Hi Kaldari, I was testing the "Wikimedia OTRS release generator" which I translated to Portuguese and it's only working for "Portuguese". When you change language selection to "Brazilian Portuguese" the "Wikimedia OTRS release generator" change its language to English. However, my translation could easily work for Portuguese and Brazilian Portuguese. How can we change it to make it work for both languages? Regards.--SirEdimon Dimmi!!! 23:01, 3 May 2020 (UTC)
@SirEdimon: I'm afraid I don't know the answer to that question. Perhaps FDMS4 does though. Kaldari (talk) 04:47, 6 May 2020 (UTC)
I have implemented a workaround that should fix relgen language fetching in such cases. Thanks for all the i18n assistance you provided!    FDMS  4    09:45, 6 May 2020 (UTC)

Indonesian translationEdit

I translated MediaWiki:Relgen.js/text into Indonesian language in my subpage (User:Lord Yeager/Relgentextid.js). Since i don't have the rights to edit MediaWiki pages, can you move it to the proper place (MediaWiki:Relgen.js/i18n/id)? Regards. -- Lord Yeager (talk) 12:04, 6 May 2020 (UTC)

@Lord Yeager: Done. Kaldari (talk) 12:52, 6 May 2020 (UTC)

Request about User:Kaldari/inat2commons.jsEdit

Is it possible that this feature adds a license-template plus {{LicenseReview}} to the upload? That would be awesome. Now it has to be added manually. Thanks. Lymantria (talk) 14:52, 20 May 2020 (UTC)

@Lymantria: Good idea. I just added {{LicenseReview}}. Kaldari (talk) 04:42, 21 May 2020 (UTC)
Thanks! Lymantria (talk) 06:42, 21 May 2020 (UTC)
Just a remark and perhaps it is difficult: the license template, like {{Cc-0}}, is not added while I think the license of the image is detected... Can you look into that? Kind regards, Lymantria (talk) 14:47, 21 May 2020 (UTC)
@Lymantria: It does add the license template. It just isn't part of the Summary in the form. Kaldari (talk) 14:56, 21 May 2020 (UTC)
I tried and this was the result... Is it I did something wrong? Lymantria (talk) 15:50, 21 May 2020 (UTC)
@Lymantria: That's really weird. I just tried it myself with the same observation and it worked fine. After you click on the "Upload image" button from the image preview, what URL does it take you to exactly? Kaldari (talk) 16:31, 21 May 2020 (UTC)
Exactly [1]. I see that it mentions the license, perhaps it's a browser problem (I use Firefox)? Lymantria (talk) 16:34, 21 May 2020 (UTC)
I tried Chrome, and with Chrome it works fine indeed... Lymantria (talk) 16:37, 21 May 2020 (UTC) P.S. I run LymaBot at Chrome and language setting is English for my bot
Stranger still, I changed my default language from Dutch to English, and now it works. Lymantria (talk) 16:41, 21 May 2020 (UTC)
@Lymantria: I see the problem. The Dutch version of the upload form doesn't have cc-by-4.0 as a license option! I'll see if I can fix this. Kaldari (talk) 16:59, 21 May 2020 (UTC)
@Lymantria: It should work in Dutch now. Thanks for bringing that to my attention! Kaldari (talk) 17:24, 21 May 2020 (UTC)
Solved indeed! Great! Thanks. Lymantria (talk) 20:04, 21 May 2020 (UTC)

Commons Photographers User Group: Meeting on May 30, 2020Edit

Dear member of the Commons Photographers User Group,

I’d like to invite you to our group’s first Virtual Meeting on Saturday, May 30, 2020. The meeting will serve as an opportunity to get to know each other better, share learnings, and connect in times of the global COVID-19 pandemic.

Please take a look at the meeting page and add your name to the list of participants if you’re planning to attend.

Hope to see you in a week! All the best, --Frank Schulenburg (talk) 16:43, 23 May 2020 (UTC)

Category:Maps of Belize by yearEdit

I see you removed those categories but it's the convention here that a map of current Belize (regardless of whether Belize existed then) should go as a map of Belize. Germany for example didn't exist in its current form until the mid 19th-century. -- Ricky81682 (talk) 23:42, 17 July 2020 (UTC)

@Ricky81682: I agree with you and I don't recall removing any categories. Can you be more specific about what categories you are referring to? Kaldari (talk) 23:48, 17 July 2020 (UTC)
This edit -- Ricky81682 (talk) 00:08, 18 July 2020 (UTC)
@Ricky81682: I just removed the "Works in Belize" category since none of these maps are actually from Belize or in Belize. Although they are maps of Belize, almost all of them were created in Europe or the United States and reside in Europe or the United States. Also, Category:Works in Belize by year doesn't actually exist. Kaldari (talk) 00:17, 18 July 2020 (UTC)

Commons Photographers User Group: Meeting on September 26 and other stuffEdit

Dear member of the Commons Photographers User Group,

I've got a quick update for you, containing three items:

  • I’d like to invite you to our group’s second Virtual Meeting on Saturday, September 26, 2020. As last time, this meeting will serve as an opportunity to get to know each other better, share learnings, and connect in times of the global COVID-19 pandemic. If you'd like to present, please add your name and the proposed topic to the list on the talk page.
  • Also, I'd like to start a conversation about how we should be sharing responsibility for the user group going forward. I'd love to get some help when it comes to organizing things and I'm convinced that we can achieve more if a couple of people helped with coordinating stuff.
  • Finally, the Wikimedia Foundation has asked me to spread the word about their latest survey: Universal Code of Conduct Survey. The goal is to create a safer environment on Wikimedia projects and the Foundation gathers feedback prior to coming up with a first draft.

Hope to see you at the Zoom meeting in September!

All the best, --Frank Schulenburg (talk) 18:44, 15 August 2020 (UTC)

iNaturalistreviewEdit

Hi! You uploaded the crop 1 minute too soon so the bot could not review it. --MGA73 (talk) 19:49, 8 September 2020 (UTC)

@MGA73: Oops! Next time I'll wait. Thanks for letting me know. Kaldari (talk) 20:00, 8 September 2020 (UTC)
Great! Because it seems that the review script does not support iNaturalistreview so we have to do some manual review untill we figure out hot to fix the script. --MGA73 (talk) 20:02, 8 September 2020 (UTC)

Reminder: User Group Meeting this SaturdayEdit

Dear Commons Photographers User Group member,

This is a quick reminder that our second virtual meeting will take place this Saturday, September 26. The agenda entails presentations about drone photography, about the story behind a featured picture, and about the future of LRMediaWiki. We'll also discuss photographers’ contacts with the Wikimedia Foundation and the election of representatives for our user group. You'll find information about all of this on the event page:

I'm also inviting you to share some information about yourself and your photography work with other members of the user group on our new membership list:

I hope you're well during these difficult times. All the best, --Frank Schulenburg (talk) 15:50, 23 September 2020 (UTC)

Hello&questionEdit

Hello kaldari. Thank you for your notice on my page which is very instructive and a decent sermon as against those who treated me harshly, despite my cobcern that philippine copyright and fair use style laws are not agreeable to wikis according to a facebook users comment. Hence i sounded the alarm here about the photos that bear copyrighted bldgs and sculptures and otherss. But i will respect your notice. I wont make any new deletion requests until a couple of them are done.

One question. Are wikimedia com. And the wikipedia encyclopedia the same or are they different. I noticed some photos there with no logo of your website which is wikimedia commons. Why theres no such logo that also links them here? If same then no question. If different then is the encylopedias governing freedom of pano principle the same or not? ----
