Your bot completely wiped some fields in 2015. Arguably their contents were not super useful, but still. Was that intentional? You know Jcb doesn't like wiped fields. This image has now been nominated for deletion because of the action of your bot. - Alexis Jazz ping plz 12:31, 1 February 2019 (UTC)

With all due respect, I've addressed this many times, and I'm getting pretty sick of asking people to read the manual before contacting me. Magog the Ogre (talk) (contribs) 00:19, 2 February 2019 (UTC)
Sorry, this interaction with Jcb has left me in a sour mood, and I was unnecessarily nasty. What I mean to say is, it's right in the FAQ on the bot's page. Magog the Ogre (talk) (contribs) 00:32, 2 February 2019 (UTC)
Well, in that case one the following needs to happen:
  • The bot needs to be adjusted to stop wiping fields (or enter {{unknown}} into them) and the log of the bot should be examined so the bot can also do this for all the files of which the bot has wiped fields that cause the file to go into some maintenance category.
  • We remove Jcb from the project.
The latter will never happen, so I suggest the bot gets adjusted and also re-processes all files from which it wiped source/date/author fields. I'm not Jcb. I didn't tag File:North Florida Wordmark.png as "no source" and I didn't nominate File:Lizhongren.jpg with a very odd rationale. (the author is irrelevant for China) So I personally can't fix this. - Alexis Jazz ping plz 00:48, 2 February 2019 (UTC)
The issue that Jcb had with the page was not that my bot removed invalid data from the source field, it is that the file was, in fact, unsourced. Magog the Ogre (talk) (contribs) 03:20, 2 February 2019 (UTC)
Yes, I agree, the bot is not the problem here. Jcb (talk) 10:36, 2 February 2019 (UTC)
Magog, you do realize that's the exact same reason why North Florida Wordmark was deleted? - Alexis Jazz ping plz 14:08, 2 February 2019 (UTC)

You know nothing about real god damn country music. Thanks to Alan Jackson (aka the Nickelback of country music), not only is country music seen as a laughing stock, but traditional country sounds are being replaced by hip-hop, EDM, 80's hair metal, and Drake style R&B. Alan Jackson did to country music what Bush did to Iraq and Obama did to Libya. I wish there would be a zombie uprising of dead country legends to put and end to this mess that Alan Jackson has made country music into. Merle would go right for this soy boy and slap him like how Moe slapped Curly in the Three Stooges. #AlanJacksonKilledCountry --KelseyTranBASS1611 (talk) 02:23, 7 February 2019 (UTC)

Borrados injustosEdit

ESPAÑOL:Buenas, usuario Magog the Ogre. Todas las imágenes que he subido yo las he hecho y otras están reconocidas por ser imágenes externas. Pido que todo lo que se borró se ha devuelto como estaba. En File:Hawaii-Five-O -original-intro-and-outro.ogg, YO convertí el archivo MP4 a OGG, y en muchas otras yo mismo había hecho esos archivos. Espero la respuesta. ENGLISH: Good morning, user Magog the Ogre. All the images that I have uploaded have been made and others are recognized as external images. I ask that everything that was deleted has been returned as it was. In File: Hawaii-Five-OR -original-intro-and-outro.ogg, 'I' converted the MP4 file to OGG, and in many others I had made those files myself. I await the answer.

Wawa footprint mapEdit

Hi! Would you be so kind as to update your Wawa footprint map? It's dated 2012, but several more Wawas have opened since then, especially in Florida. - Presidentman (talk · contribs) Wikipedia Random Picture of the Day 22:40, 13 February 2019 (UTC)


This photo taken from family album and scanned. Possibly I am not unic who scan it. Because I am novice here, I do not under stand what I can to do? Now I simply insert {{PD-self}} tag to license. Is it enough?

@MikeZimnov: yes it's fine but you have to use the actual template, not just refer to it.[1] Magog the Ogre (talk) (contribs) 03:27, 16 February 2019 (UTC)
Thanks. I edit license, but I am not sure that it is OK... Thanks again

Daria Nyzankiwska-Snihurowycz.jpgEdit

Hello Magog the Ogre, Can you check if I have added the tag in the right place? Thank you.Nicola Mitchell (talk) 20:18, 16 February 2019 (UTC)

@Nicola Mitchell: how are you the copyright holder of that image? Magog the Ogre (talk) (contribs) 23:39, 16 February 2019 (UTC)
Did I use the wrong tag? This image is almost 90 years old and its copyright has expired in most countries in the world. So its in the public domain. What tag could be used to indicate that? Any help from you would be much appreciated. Nicola Mitchell (talk) 00:29, 17 February 2019 (UTC)
Could you check again and see if what I did works? Nicola Mitchell (talk) 12:23, 17 February 2019 (UTC)
@Nicola Mitchell: yes that's better. Are you sure the author is unknown? Magog the Ogre (talk) (contribs) 17:59, 17 February 2019 (UTC)
Yes Nicola Mitchell (talk) 18:14, 17 February 2019 (UTC)
