Cleanup toolEdit

Greetings. I use your cleanup script and noticed that when I click the slower but safe cleaning option, it redirects me to a wmf toollabs URL – toollabs:magog/do_cleanup.php. I'd like to optimize this feature for mobile (Minerva) skin. I guess the script sends a post request because if I manually go to this URL, it says the file parameter is missing. How can I add this file parameter? Is there any other parameter? Could you point me to your script's api documentation page please if you don't mind?. Masum Reza📞 20:14, 8 September 2019 (UTC)

@Masumrezarock100: the script has no public documentation. However, I can tell you the parameters for an API nonetheless. You can use GET or POST, but GET will fail if the text field is more than 2000 characters.
The URL is:
The input fields are:
  • image (required): the name of the file. Must have at least one entry in the file history.
  • text (optional): the text to update. If not present, the script will use the file's current text.
  • summary (optional): this is useful only for front-end.
It successful, it returns the following fields:
  • changes: "major", "minor", or "none"
  • warnings: an array of issues that the bot detected when doing the cleanup
  • text: the new text
  • edittime: the last time the page was edited (I don't remember why I included this, but it's probably not useful)
  • summary: this is useful only for front-end.
If there is a fatal error, it returns the following fields:
  • error: the text explanation of the error.
Here is a sample call:,_Handwoven_Coverlet,_c._1937,_NGA_12904.jpg.

I just realized that Minerva skin doesn't have a usable sidebar. And the mobile editor covers the whole screen so there is no space for any gadget. So I probably won't be able to make it. (: Thanks anyway, for telling me the parameters, I appreciate it. :) I think it would be good if one could write a documentation page. It would be helpful for developers.

@Masumrezarock100: I may consider it. But in years of use, I've never had anyone else ask for an API. Magog the Ogre (talk) (contribs) 16:15, 22 September 2019 (UTC)
Lol, sorry if my request was weird. Masum Reza📞 16:40, 22 September 2019 (UTC)
So I have enabled Add all pages I edit to my watchlist in my preferences. I noticed that cleanup script doesn't check the Watch this page checkbox. And I always have to check it manually. Can you fix this? Masum Reza📞 11:04, 30 September 2019 (UTC)

Designer JeanEdit

You deleted a picture that was already confirmed by FlickrevieweR 2 and was confirmed licensed under the term of cc-zero. Check this link which has clearly mentioned that Peter Golding has renamed his account and holds the authority to license this picture. He released the picture under the right license. I seriously don't understand the reason for deleting a picture that is confirmed. It was deleted first with the obvious reasons. (ScorpionShark (talk) 08:50, 30 September 2019 (UTC))

(talk page stalker) @ScorpionShark: What Flickr file was this? - Alexis Jazz ping plz 08:57, 30 September 2019 (UTC)

@ScorpionShark: Files which were previously deleted in a discussion are automatically subject to speedy deletion per COM:CSD#G4. If you'd like to appeal, I recommend you speak with User:Ronhjones, and if you don't find that fruitful, you can appeal at COM:UNDEL. We take appeals seriously so if see a convincing argument, an administrator will undelete your file. Magog the Ogre (talk) (contribs) 22:28, 30 September 2019 (UTC)

Александр МотинEdit

I understand you, that block is too strong way in Commons:Administrators' noticeboard/User problems#Александр Мотин, but what is about other ways from Commons sysop's arsenal - warning for example. He has proceed with personal attacks, and he as indef-blocked user in Ru-Wiki will have not heard any warning from ru-wiki sysop. Alex Spade (talk) 18:48, 2 October 2019 (UTC)

@Alex Spade: OK that's a bit worse. If it happens again let me know and I'll provide a polite warning. Honestly I'd suggest you let it go unless the attacks go over the top, or directs them at other users. Personal attack warnings usually induce the backfire effect and just make the situation worse.

Illustrazione di Aleksandr Benois per "Il cavaliere di bronzo".jpgEdit

Hi! I modified the license for the file as requested, following the instructions of another similar file. I had pud PD-Russia instead of PD-RusEmpire.--Carmela Angela (talk) 22:23, 3 October 2019 (UTC)

@Carmela Angela: your post didn't add the template, and even if it did, you didn't add a date, so how do I know if it was published before the Revolution? Magog the Ogre (talk) (contribs) 03:15, 4 October 2019 (UTC)
The illustration is from 1916 as you can see from this site.--Carmela Angela (talk) 12:53, 4 October 2019 (UTC)
@Carmela Angela: ok thanks for the update! Magog the Ogre (talk) (contribs) 14:20, 4 October 2019 (UTC)
