File problem fix?Edit

This was copied here 3+ years ago but with no required second tag. The artist, Jules Cheret, died in 1932. Can things be fixed here by adding the {{PD-old-70}} tag? The en:WP was brought to FFD today. Thanks, We hope (talk) 21:06, 5 August 2017 (UTC)

As always-THANKS!! :-) We hope (talk) 22:41, 5 August 2017 (UTC)

KeyBank mapEdit

Please update the KeyBank location map. It's missing its Pennsylvania, Connecticut, Massachusetts and some New York locations because of its acquisition of First Niagara Bank. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Thomas J. Seymour (talk • contribs) 16:39, 8 August 2017 (UTC)

OgreBot 2 edit breaks formatting in Wikipedia Media ViewerEdit

Hi,

The edit of "OgreBot 2" here changed a date from "March 2017" to "2017-03". Unfortunately, Wikipedia Media Viewer does not correctly handle "2017-03", displaying it as "1 March 2017", i.e. adding a spurious "1". Until this bug in Media Viewer is fixed, I feel it is not advisable to make such automated changes (unless leaving it as "March 2017" breaks something else even worse, I suppose). See also https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Village_pump_(technical)#Bug_in_dating_of_photographs. Mypix (talk) 17:54, 9 August 2017 (UTC)

@Mypix: the reason for the edit is to make it multilingual, which is a core tenant of our project. I apologize but I think the best solution is to have Mediawiki fix their viewer. Leyo, you helped form some of the policies for this bot. Do you care to share a second opinion? Magog the Ogre (talk) (contribs) 03:15, 10 August 2017 (UTC)
Yes, I totally agree that it should be fixed in Media Viewer, but judging by this there is zero chance of that happening within the foreseeable future. It has already been logged since 2013, with no sign of any interest in fixing it, being given "lowest" priority, and some people implying that it is not even worth fixing. In the meantime, dates continue to be displayed incorrectly. Mypix (talk) 03:42, 10 August 2017 (UTC)
A format like |Date=2017-03 has been the standard for a long time. Media Viewer needs to correctly handle it. --Leyo 12:26, 11 August 2017 (UTC)
Well, does anyone here have any influence that could be brought to bear on the developers to actually fix it? Mypix (talk) 17:43, 11 August 2017 (UTC)
@Mypix: I will throw my weight behind it, although I wouldn't ever bet on my "influence" over anything.   Magog the Ogre (talk) (contribs) 22:55, 15 August 2017 (UTC)

Container pitchers and baseball pitchersEdit

Hi, Magog, could you please have a bot move everything in Category:Pitchers to Category:Pitchers (containers). I will then weed out the baseball pitchers. - Bossanoven (talk) 03:05, 15 August 2017 (UTC)

  already done apparently. Magog the Ogre (talk) (contribs) 22:57, 15 August 2017 (UTC)
