Copy of my answer for deletion of Category:ReconstitutionEdit

I propose this category for deletion. I do not see any meaning in it. Marsupium (talk) 21:25, 27 June 2015 (UTC)

Many other virtual reconstitutions of dispersed polyptychs might be in this category. In example of pictures would expose their original state :
Perhaps the word reconstitution it istnot the good word. Which one is better ? (But the expression Reconstitution is used on many books : Roberto Longhi in Officina Ferrarese ; Diane Cole Ahl in Fra Angelico, Phaidon, 2008 ISBN 978-0-7148-5858-6 Reconstitution de la composition originelle, p. 226) Virtual reconstitution (in painting) ? For WGA Digitized reconstruction of panels. (And in french « Reconstitution virtuelle », ou « Reconstitution hypothétique » quand des éléments ne sont pas certains).--- Salutations. louis-garden pinXit (On en cause) 08:39, 3 July 2015 (UTC)

Code issues in User:Marsupium/common.jsEdit

Hi Marsupium, 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:Marsupium/common.js. Glad to see you coding in javascript! Have you ever considered becoming a MediaWiki hacker?
  2. Though, that change appears to introduce 1 new jshint issue — the page's status is now having warnings. 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. Good luck at Wikimedia Commons and happy hacking!
  1. ISSUE: line 65 character 47: Missing semicolon. - Evidence: importScript('User:Magog the Ogre/cleanup.js') // [[User:Magog the Ogre/cleanup.js]]

Augustins - Les quatre fonctions du capitoulat toulousain - Jacques Boulbène RO 29.jpg‎Edit

Everything is sourced. The information is extracted from the museum site. --Archaeodontosaurus (talk) 15:00, 30 August 2018 (UTC)

@Archaeodontosaurus: Thanks for your note! I have to explain myself: I think it isn't directly visible where the information comes from, but that is totally fine and the same for almost all our artwork photos. That wasn't the reason to remove the information, it was more part of the efforts to move data about artworks to Wikidata and to remove then redundant or inferior data here.
And BTW: The reason why I removed the table (and edited the page at all) was my work on User:Multichill/Unable to add Wikidata link where it probably showed up because the bot doesn't understand the syntax with the table. I don't see much value in this table also. And even if it should get rendered, HTML table syntax in the page source text probably isn't the best idea to achieve that.
That said, neither the redundant data, nor the funny table are much of a problem. So if you follow me you might edit the page again, or if you don't not. Thanks and cheers, --Marsupium (talk) 15:46, 30 August 2018 (UTC)
  • I checked my captions on the list you sent me: the bot can not place the link wikidata because it is already there. I place it systematically. The rest of the syntax does not pose a problem, we made it so that there is none. I am always attentive to the improvements that can be made. Regards --Archaeodontosaurus (talk) 16:15, 30 August 2018 (UTC)

Category:John HalesEdit

Hello Marsupium (clever username if you ask me  ), I just came across another puzzling one. The category/wikidata indicates: 1584 births and 1656 deaths. The description in the file reads: John Hales (1524–1572). The Wet van Gresham in Dutch mentions he died in 1971. Do you know where we can find an answer to this to correct the different dates? Thank you for your time. Lotje (talk) 14:02, 19 September 2018 (UTC)

Only me again, to give you a idea of how confusing it is now, I added some files to the category. Lotje (talk) 14:09, 19 September 2018 (UTC)
I'll try to check some sources on Sunday. Best, --Marsupium (talk) 10:49, 20 September 2018 (UTC)
Thnks a lot Marsupium Lotje (talk) 12:47, 22 September 2018 (UTC)
@Lotje: Alors, there is w:John Hales (died 1572)/d:Q6237275. It seems that File:John Hales by British School.jpg is in the wrong category and there needs to be a new one created for the person. And its wrong on enwiki article. --Marsupium (talk) 04:42, 23 September 2018 (UTC)
Thank you very much Marsupium for having unraveled this mistery.   Lotje (talk) 04:46, 23 September 2018 (UTC)
@Marsupium:, bien  , as it all seems to be mixed up, and you did the source checking, I leave it up to you to change where need be. Thank you for your time. Lotje (talk) 04:50, 23 September 2018 (UTC)
  Done --Marsupium (talk) 10:47, 29 September 2018 (UTC)

Structured Data - IRC office hour today, 1 NovemberEdit

There will be an IRC office hour for Structured Data on Commons today, 1 October 2018, from 17:00-18:00 UTC in #wikimedia-office. You can find date/time conversion, as well as a link to join the chat in your browser if needed, on the IRC Office hours page on Meta. I realize this may be short notice for some people; I am experimenting with advanced notice times to see what works best for the most people, I'll be giving more warning before the next office hour. I look forward to seeing you there. -- Keegan (WMF) (talk) 16:02, 1 November 2018 (UTC)

Structured Data - IRC office hour today, 1 NovemberEdit

The above message says 1 October in the body when it should say 1 November, as the subject line says. Apologies for making a new section by mass message, it's the only way to get this out quickly. See you in twenty minutes! -- Keegan (WMF) (talk) 16:37, 1 November 2018 (UTC)

Structured Data - copyright and licensing statementsEdit

I've posted a second round of designs for modeling copyright and licensing in structured data. These redesigns are based off the feedback received in the first round of designs, and the development team is looking for more discussion. These designs are extremely important for the Commons community to review, as they deal with how copyright and licensing is translated from templates into structured form. I look forward to seeing you over there. -- Keegan (WMF) (talk) 16:25, 2 November 2018 (UTC)

Multilingual captions beta testingEdit

The Structured Data on Commons team has begun beta testing of the first feature, multilingual file captions, and all community members are invited to test it out. Captions is based on designs discussed with the community[1][2] and the team is looking forward to hearing about testing. If all goes well during testing, captions will be turned on for Commons around the second week of January, 2019.

Multilingual captions are plain text fields that provide brief, easily translatable details of a file in a way that is easy to create, edit, and curate. Captions are added during the upload process using the UploadWizard, or they can be added directly on any file page on Commons. Adding captions in multiple languages is a simple process that requires only a few steps.

The details:

  • There is a help page available on how to use multilingual file captions.
  • Testing will take place on Beta Commons. If you don’t yet have an account set up there, you’ll need one.
  • Beta Commons is a testbed, and not configured exactly like the real Commons site, so expect to see some discrepancies with user interface (UI) elements like search.
  • Structured Data introduces the potential for many important page changes to happen at once, which could flood the recent changes list. Because of this, Enhanced Recent Changes is enabled as it currently is at Commons, but with some UI changes.
  • Feedback and commentary on the file caption functionality are welcome and encouraged on the discussion page for this post.
  • Some testing has already taken place and the team are aware of some issues. A list of known issues can be seen below.
  • If you discover a bug/issue that is not covered in the known issues, please file a ticket on Phabricator and tag it with the “Multimedia” tag. Use this link to file a new task already tagged with "Multimedia."

Known issues:

Structured Data - file captions coming this week (January 2019)Edit

Hi all, following up on last month's announcement...

Multilingual file captions will be released this week, on either Wednesday, 9 November or Thursday, 10 November 2019. Captions are a feature to add short, translatable descriptions to files. Here's some links you might want to look follow before the release, if you haven't already:

  1. Read over the help page for using captions - I wrote the page on because captions are available for any MediaWiki user, feel free to host/modify a copy of the page here on Commons.
  2. Test out using captions on Beta Commons.
  3. Leave feedback about the test on the captions test talk page, if you have anything you'd like to say prior to release.

Additionally, there will be an IRC office hour on Thursday, 10 January with the Structured Data team to talk about file captions, as well as anything else the community may be interested in. Date/time conversion, as well as a link to join, are on Meta.

Thanks for your time, I look forward to seeing those who can make it to the IRC office hour on Thursday. -- Keegan (WMF) (talk) 20:22, 7 January 2019 (UTC)

Structured Data - development update, March 2019Edit

This text is also posted on the Structured Data hub talk page. You can reply there with questions, comments, or concerns.

A development update for the current work by the Structured Data on Commons team:

After the release of multilingual file captions, work began on getting depicts and other statements ready for release. These were originally scheduled for release in February and into March, however there are currently two major blockers to finishing this work (T215642, T217157). We will know more next week about when depicts and statements can likely be ready for testing and then release; until then I've tentatively updated the release schedule.

Once the depicts feature is ready for testing, it will take place in two stages on TestCommons. The first is checking the very basics; is the design comfortable, how does the simple workflow of adding/editing/removing statements work, and building up help and process pages from there. The second part is a more detailed test of depicts and other statements, checking the edge-case examples of using the features, bugs that did not come up during simple testing, etc. Additionally we'll be looking with the community for bugs in interaction with bots, gadgets, and other scripts once the features are live on Commons. Please let me know if you're interesting in helping test and fix these bugs if they show up upon release, it is really hard to find them in a test environment or, in some cases, bugs won't show up in a testing environment at all.

One new thing is definitely coming within the next few weeks, pending testing: the ability to search for captions. This is done using the inlabel keyword in search strings, and will be the first step in helping users find content that is specifically structured data. I'll post a notice when that feature is live and ready for use.

Thanks, let me know if you have questions about these plans. Keegan (WMF) (talk) 21:34, 12 March 2019 (UTC)

Structured Data - early depicts testingEdit

The Structured Data on Commons development team has the very basic version of depicts statements available for early testing on Test-Commons. You can add very basic depicts statements to the file page by going into the new “Structured Data” tab located below the "Open in Media Viewer button." You can use the Latest Files link in the left side nav bar to select existing images, or use the UploadWizard to upload new ones to test with (although those images won’t actually show up on the site). The test site is not a fully functional replica of Commons, so there may be some overall problems in using the site, but you should be able to get a general idea of what using the feature is like.

Early next week I will call for broad, community-wide testing of the feature similar to what we did for Captions, with instructions for testing, known bugs, and a dedicated space to discuss the feature as well as a simple help page for using statements. Until then, you're welcome to post on the SDC talk page with what you might find while testing depicts.

Thanks in advance for trying it out, you'll be hearing more from me next week. -- Keegan (WMF) (talk) 21:59, 21 March 2019 (UTC)
