User:Daniel C. BoyerEdit

Last week, you deleted a previously deleted image re-uploaded by this user. Today he has re-uploaded another previously deleted image, File:Marker and marmalade drawing.jpg. I nominated it for deletion before seeing your message on his talk page. Beyond My Ken (talk) 04:06, 6 July 2019 (UTC)

misbehaving galleriesEdit

Hello Magog the Ogre,

You have removed misbehaving galleries bur at least one part was ok - "* [[:Category:Media from the Israeli Police]] | [[User:geagea/Media from the Israeli Police/New files]] | 200x200 DAYS_PER_GALLERY(1)". It's ment to be for reviewing new files uploaded according to {{IsraeliPoliceLicense}}.
And about the other part/s. Can you help me how to fix them to be ok. They are needed. -- Geagea (talk) 10:26, 9 July 2019 (UTC)

@Geagea: can you please monitor the galleries and identify any categories that should be removed if they fail? I got pinged for your galleries quite a bit before I removed them. Magog the Ogre (talk) (contribs) 01:21, 14 July 2019 (UTC)
Ya. Will make 2 galleries. The first one definitely didn't made problems and will check every notification about the second gallery. -- Geagea (talk) 11:09, 14 July 2019 (UTC)
@Geagea: so how would you like me to implmement this? Magog the Ogre (talk) (contribs) 21:09, 14 July 2019 (UTC)
first I'll put back: "* [[:Category:Media from the Israeli Police]] | [[User:geagea/Media from the Israeli Police/New files]] | 200x200 DAYS_PER_GALLERY(1)". - this one does not make problem. I'll go through the problems in my talk page and tru to solve them. Then I will add category Israel and will see if there are more problems. Eventually I believe it will be ok. -- Geagea (talk) 21:15, 14 July 2019 (UTC)


I mistyped "own" as "{own" on some uploads. The changes of 200 files by your bot made it not really better:

@C.Suthorn: I've never seen that one. The bot does get confused by malformed input (GIGO). I'll take a look and see if I can fix it. Magog the Ogre (talk) (contribs) 02:05, 11 July 2019 (UTC)

Your editEdit


Concerning File:Tłok pieczęci powstańczej Rypina z 1863 r. - pamiątka rodzinna po powstańcu styczniowym Antonim Janowiczu (1839-1921).jpg and your edit there: the file did have a proper license tag, which was later removed by the original uploader in an attempt to revoke the license. As far as I understand, releasing the rights while uploading is irrevocable, and hence that action was legally futile. On the other hand, the file is a 2D copy of a 2D object (seal from 1863), which makes it dubious if the upolader indeed had any rights whatsoever.

@Gżdacz: on Commons, we consider coins to be 3D objects, so the license is not dubious. Magog the Ogre (talk) (contribs) 17:36, 14 July 2019 (UTC)
Thanks, Gżdacz (talk) 20:59, 14 July 2019 (UTC)

Madonna della Guardia - Ornavasso 1.jpgEdit

Mass removeEdit

Hi Magog. Is there a way that you can solve the error "Unstrip size limit exceeded (5,000,000)" as seen on numerous recent upload pages. E.g. Commons:WikiProject Aviation/recent uploads/2014 May 3. Perhaps you can tweek the bot to just put the file name without the File: part and it can reduce the page size by about 30-40k bytes. (Talk/留言/토론/Discussion) 16:41, 17 July 2019 (UTC)

@大诺史: thanks for the note. The gallery is not supposed to get that big so I deleted it. Magog the Ogre (talk) (contribs) 21:54, 17 July 2019 (UTC)
There are also a lot more of such galleries. Could I just linked them on my sandbox for you to delete? (Talk/留言/토론/Discussion) 23:39, 17 July 2019 (UTC)
That's fine, or just link me the category. Magog the Ogre (talk) (contribs) 00:14, 18 July 2019 (UTC)
