User talk:Ronhjones

Hi there! To keep the flow of conversations, I like to keep threads on one page where possible. So, if you post a message here, I'll probably respond to it here - I do have e-mail alerts for this page. Conversely, if I post a message on your talk page, you can respond there if you wish; since I've edited your talk page I'll have it on my watchlist. Thanks!

Code issues in User:Ronhjones/common.jsEdit

Hi Ronhjones, 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:Ronhjones/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 21 character 40: Missing semicolon. - Evidence: importScript ('User:Rillke/SVGedit.js')

Phaistos glyphsEdit

Hi -- regarding the Phaistos images, yes, they are mirrored, this is done on purpose because the original "text" runs right-to-left, and the images are intended for "citing" the text in a left-to-right environment. It is perfectly possible that the un-mirrored images may also be desired in certain contexts, but then the existing images shouldn't be overwritten, they should be uploaded as variants, under separate filenames. --Dbachmann (talk) 07:37, 27 September 2017 (UTC)

Thanks for explanation - I'll tell the poster at OTRS. Ronhjones  (Talk) 18:09, 27 September 2017 (UTC)

File:Coup Mongolia 28.12.1911 in German newspaper.jpg,Edit

Hi Ronhjones, I do not understand. I think that this time I clicked everything right: not my work, older than 100 years + the source I also specified. What was wrong this time?--Obstsorte (talk) 07:28, 30 September 2017 (UTC)

@Obstsorte: We do not re-upload, especially under a different name - it looks like a devious way of getting the image up - all uploads are checked against all deleted images. The correct procedure is to go to Commons:Undeletion requests and ask for the original upload (File:Putsch Hutuktu 28.12.1911. Die Presse. Ostmärkische Tageszeitung vom 31. Dezember 1911.jpg) to be undeleted - then those admins on undeletion requests can see the original reason for deletion and see if those issues have been properly addressed. They may well want to know the writer's name, so that the standard copyright term of 70 years post writer's death can be applied. If unknown they may well decide for 130 years (although that figure is still a proposal, I think) to ensure that the copyright has properly expired. Ronhjones  (Talk) 17:04, 30 September 2017 (UTC)
