Wil je eens zien of dit correct is? Anders hoor ik het graag. Lotje (talk) 05:22, 30 August 2018 (UTC)

Sorry Rudolphous, wrong user talk page.   Lotje (talk) 14:45, 30 August 2018 (UTC)
Geen probleem. Rudolphous (talk) 10:25, 31 August 2018 (UTC)

Foto's met dezelfde cameralocatiesEdit

Dag Rudolphous, ik zag dat je bot recentelijk een paar foto's aan de categorie Mathieu de Layensplein (Leuven) heeft toegevoegd. Bij in ieder geval 4 foto's zijn de cameralocaties exact hetzelfde. Twee foto's zijn in februari 2013 genomen en twee in april 2018. Ze zijn of niet relevant voor het plein zoals bijvoorbeeld deze foto of ze zijn niet op het plein genomen bijvoorbeeld deze foto die eerder het station laat zien. De bot heeft zijn werk wel goed gedaan, maar de coördinaten bij de foto's zijn fout. Kan ik dit het beste beschouwen als problemen die kunnen voorkomen en handmatig in de goede categorie gezet moeten worden? Zoja, "weet" de bot dat hij deze foto's al heeft gehad en niet na de correctie alsnog weer in de verkeerde categorie stopt? Groeten, Wouter (talk) 20:57, 1 September 2018 (UTC)

Hoi Wouter, De gps locaties op de foto's zijn inderdaad incorrect. Deze heb ik verwijderd en de foto's heb ik gecorrigeerd. Hierdoor kan het sowieso niet meer fout gaan. Verder "onthoud" de bot dit doordat ik hem alleen laat draaien op bepaalde (zeer volle) categorien. Mvg, Rudolphous (talk) 03:38, 2 September 2018 (UTC)

Bad categorizationEdit

Stop the bot! It does not correctly categorize files! --Микола Василечко (talk) 16:47, 12 September 2018 (UTC)

Can you explain? The following was the correct place. [1]. Rudolphous (talk) 16:54, 12 September 2018 (UTC)
File:Замок (руїни) (мур.), Чорнокозинці.jpg - this and others — not Ternopil Oblast!!! This is — Khmelnytsky Oblast! And also not categorization in topic categories. --Микола Василечко (talk) 16:59, 12 September 2018 (UTC)
Oke, the bot is stopped and I will dive into this issue. Rudolphous (talk) 17:04, 12 September 2018 (UTC)
According to Open Street Maps the bot categorized this to Zbruchanske because of this result [2]. Rudolphous (talk) 17:09, 12 September 2018 (UTC)
Categorized all the pictures of the castle now in Category:Chornokozintsi castle. Rudolphous (talk) 17:20, 12 September 2018 (UTC)
I checked also my reverts, nobody reverted except you for this castle and two other pictures with the correct place. Rudolphous (talk) 17:33, 12 September 2018 (UTC)

Diergaarde Blijdorp en de wijk BlijdorpEdit

Hoi Rudolphous, ik zag dat je een aantal afbeeldingen uit de wijk Blijdorp in de categorie van de Diergaarde Blijdorp heb ondergebracht, maar beide zijn niet hetzelfde, en kunnen wellicht beter gescheiden blijven. Groet, Mdd (talk) 13:47, 18 September 2018 (UTC)

Dit is inderdaad niet de bedoeling. Ik heb drie foto's gecorrigeerd. Rudolphous (talk) 20:04, 18 September 2018 (UTC)

Mayes CountyEdit

Hi Rudolphous, some of your bot's edits like this one and that one deleted the county information. Can you please correct this? --LamBoet (talk) 08:24, 28 September 2018 (UTC)

This is corrected now. Thanks for your message. Rudolphous (talk) 18:46, 28 September 2018 (UTC)


Hi! In this edit, the bot inserted a space in between the {s of a template, breaking it. I have fixed it there, but maybe it happened in other places as well during that bot run? It would be a good idea to check I think. Jon Harald Søby (talk) 11:07, 1 October 2018 (UTC)

Thanks, fixed the problem. Searched also for similar cases and fixed them as well. Rudolphous (talk) 20:34, 1 October 2018 (UTC)


@Rudolphous:, Meneerke bloem was so kind as to go through some files, you might wish to take them off the category now.   Lotje (talk) 13:23, 7 October 2018 (UTC)

Thanks! Rudolphous (talk)

non-Lepidoptera of Worcestershire‎Edit

Hi Rudolphous, it seems like your bot mis-categorized a few like this one yesterday, can you please check? Thanks! --LamBoet (talk) 20:52, 10 October 2018 (UTC)

Fixed the problem. Thanks for your message and categorization help! Rudolphous (talk) 05:37, 11 October 2018 (UTC)


Hi Rudolphous, your bot categorized File:Gunfight Spot (220373993).jpeg as Aix-en-Provence, but there is no indication in the source that this photo might be from there. Have you more information? --Bjs (talk) 12:02, 12 October 2018 (UTC)

uups. I found now the link to the map, according to which it is Cabriès near Aix-en-Provence. --Bjs (talk) 12:10, 12 October 2018 (UTC)
No problem. Rudolphous (talk) 20:07, 12 October 2018 (UTC)


Hi Rudolphous. I created and used the template:wdbox redirect, for template:wikidata infobox. Could you inform your bot about that?

Thank you in advance. --FocalPoint (talk) 15:04, 14 October 2018 (UTC)

Sure, will add this, Regards Rudolphous (talk) 15:07, 14 October 2018 (UTC)

Category:Devonshire Parish, Bermuda?Edit

Are you sure the pictures of the caves are in Devonshire Parish. The may be in Hamilton Parish, and the Dockyards are in Sandys Parish as is Cambridge Beaches Resort & Spa. --Traveler100 (talk) 18:16, 19 October 2018 (UTC)

Hello Traveler100, according to google maps this is right. But to make it easy: I moved one picture to Crystal Cave and the others to Caves of Bermuda. Changes also the Dockyards. Thanks, Rudolphous (talk) 19:21, 19 October 2018 (UTC)

Birds in zoos (in the UK)Edit

Hi Rudolphous - captive birds in zoos are in a country, but not native, so are not of a country (just the same as e.g. File:Barack Obama Westminster Hall (2) May 2011.png does not mean that Barack Obama can be added to Category:People of the United Kingdom - he is in, but not of, the UK). Therefore, categories like "Category:Marmaronetta of the United Kingdom" which cover species only found in captivity in the UK, should not be created. Instead, please ensure that such photos are placed in categories of the form "Category:Genus species (captive)" or "Category:Genus species in zoos". Thanks! - MPF (talk) 01:23, 29 October 2018 (UTC)

Deleted around 8 categories. Thanks! Kind Regards, Rudolphous (talk) 05:12, 29 October 2018 (UTC)
Excellent, thanks! - MPF (talk) 17:24, 29 October 2018 (UTC)

Wikidata InfoboxEdit


Please, could You correct the year of birth: 1949, not 1946. Here is the source, the artist's website and his biography:
Thank You.

Artur Andrzej (talk) 08:50, 12 November 2018 (UTC)

Changed, thanks! Rudolphous (talk) 17:47, 12 November 2018 (UTC)

deltemplate peoplebynameEdit

Please only apply this if both the given name AND the surname are available from Wikidata. This is not always the case. See Category:Joakim_Lindengren for a recent example.

Best Wishes S a g a C i t y (talk) 09:06, 14 November 2018 (UTC)

The category Birds should be empty.Edit

Every bird image should rather be categorized into its own species category.

F (talk) 21:01, 17 November 2018 (UTC)

Yes, will do that after uploading. Rudolphous (talk) 21:01, 17 November 2018 (UTC)
Need a couple of days to categorize everything. Rudolphous (talk) 23:42, 17 November 2018 (UTC)
Most of it is done now. Rudolphous (talk) 21:12, 18 November 2018 (UTC)

Falsche Kategorien vom Bot bei Pfrondorf (Tübingen)Edit

Hallo Rudolphous, ich weiss nicht warum dein Bot so viele panoramio-bilder von 500px unter der Category:Pfrondorf (Tübingen) falsch einsortiert hat. Pfrondorf ist nur ein kleines Dorf, nur ein Ortsteil von Tübingen. Ich habe nun zumindest die Fehler in Bezug auf das Fliessgewässer Steinlach und die Ortschaft Bebenhausen repariert. Bitte nochmal die Botaufträge überprüfen. --Vux (talk) 21:18, 27 November 2018 (UTC)

Oke, danke für deine Nachricht. Rudolphous (talk) 21:21, 27 November 2018 (UTC)

False coordinatesEdit

Hi Rudolphous, many photos from external projects (as 500px) have false, fictional coordinates. Automatical detailed categorization be street is a bit problematic in such cases. Possibly, the bot should detect some symptoms of implausible coordinates, e.g. identical coordinates of a set of photos etc. In case of 500px, i noticed even sets with quite identical latitude (e.g. 50.086005267836) but various longitudes – all nonsense and random numbers. Many uploaders at external projects (500px, Flickr, Panoramio) use coordinates only very roughly, as a global definition point of the city, not to identify the exact location of the camera. --ŠJů (talk) 02:37, 3 December 2018 (UTC)

I saw you corrected two pictures categorized to a street in Prague by RudolphousBot. And removed a couple of wrong gps coordinates of pictures that where categorized to Prague by someone else. Thanks for this. Automatic geocoding of pictures in general is a bit problematic. Since 99,9% of the categories are right, at least most of the pictures can be found now. I will think about a way to skip too precise coordinates the next time I do geocoding. Rudolphous (talk) 18:36, 3 December 2018 (UTC)

The Wikidata Infobox we always write above the categories. Not sure what you mean. Rudolphous (talk) 21:10, 14 December 2018 (UTC)
  • There was a computer or website error on the page Category:Wilson Brest (s....). This page is ok (in Ordnung) today and now, thank you for fast response,--PjotrMahh1 (talk) 07:26, 16 December 2018 (UTC)


Hello. Help improvements for en:Maureen Wroblewitz. 07:29, 16 December 2018 (UTC) Example: JK Labajo into Juan Karlos Labajo

You can make the edits yourself. Regards, Rudolphous (talk) 07:31, 16 December 2018 (UTC)

Charadriiformes of FranceEdit

Hello, Rudolphous. Why did you do this? This category seems adequate to contain that one, as well as the others that are currently inside it. Christian Ferrer (talk) 19:05, 16 December 2018 (UTC)

Correct, reverted it. Rudolphous (talk) 19:25, 16 December 2018 (UTC)

Birthdate missing for Zlil SelaEdit

Hi! Can you help me with your source for the birthdate of mathematician W:Zlil Sela? Your infobox - added by bot - quotes an ID of Q207244, but I don't know how to use that to find the source of the wikidata included in the infobox. And the English Wikipedia doesn't have his birthdate at all. Thanks! Yahya Abdal-Aziz (talk) 12:22, 23 December 2018 (UTC)

Hello Yahya Abdal-Aziz. The entry can be found here. The birthday overthere was added in 2014 by this edit. Maybe because on that date multple wikipedia's existed with his brithdate. Seems it started with the German Wikipedia in 2009 with this edit by Claude J who is still active. Kind regards, Rudolphous (talk) 13:22, 23 December 2018 (UTC)

Lemur cattaEdit

Hi there. I was wondering why you uploaded so many similar images of lemur catta? It makes it very difficult for users to find the best images. Charles (talk) 18:01, 15 January 2019 (UTC)

I thought these pictures where a win for this project. BTW: many others did upload files from the same source, for example here or here. I probably uploaded a minority of the pictures in this category. I'm happy to delete some if you nominate them tough. Or maybe you have a proposal how to categorize them further Rudolphous (talk) 20:11, 15 January 2019 (UTC)
Thanks for replying, but I cannot see how this is a 'win'. A dump of dozens of images onto Commons without selection and editing is not at all helpful. Responsible editors select and upload only the most valuable, most interesting or highest quality images. There are, as you point out, other people who also spam too many images! Charles (talk) 12:05, 30 January 2019 (UTC)

Boerderij De Bonte Koe SassenheimEdit

Hoi Rudolphous, Ik zie naast de foto van de boerderij ook een kleurenfoto. Die hoort niet bij De Bonte Koe, maar bij huize Wiltrijk, Hoofdstraat 55 te Sassenheim. De Bonte Koe was destijds van mijn grootvader. Vriendelijke groet, A. van Went —Preceding unsigned comment was added by (talk) 16:37, 26 January 2019 (UTC)

Peter Trimmin photosEdit

Hi Rudolphous! Thanks for recategorizing these files into the "Category:Photographs of *** by Peter Trimmin". But not all of them are photographs: File:Forest How Squirrels (8042953618) - video.webm, File:Feeding 'Belinda' (15263809674).webm (enjoy the cuteness ;) -- Meisam (talk) 23:37, 2 February 2019 (UTC)

Cute indeed :-) Corrected it. Thanks! Rudolphous (talk) 16:42, 6 February 2019 (UTC)

Two Westchester County, New York sitesEdit

The coordinates for the White Plains TransCenter is wrong. I tried to correct them (41°02'02.0"N 73°46'25.0"W), but instead I ended up eliminating the coordinates feature from the Wikidata infobox, and I don't know how to get it back. Can you restore it with the correct coordinates? Also can you add a Wikidata infobox for Hawthorne (Metro-North station)? ----DanTD (talk) 14:32, 6 February 2019 (UTC)

Corrected the gps and added the infobox + some other infooxes of NYC metro's. Rudolphous (talk) 15:25, 6 February 2019 (UTC)
Thanks for those too. ----DanTD (talk) 16:40, 6 February 2019 (UTC)

Rijksmonument categorie zonder link met WikidataEdit

Hi Rudolphous, alles goed? Ik heb op een lijstje gemaakt van categorieën van Rijksmonumenten die nog niet aan Wikidata hangen. Daarbij kom ik Category:Oudebrugsteeg 7, Amsterdam tegen, is dat niet hetzelfde gebouw als Category:Accijnshuis (Amsterdam)? Als je het Rijksmonument nummer weet dan kan je gemakkelijk zoeken op Wikidata. Multichill (talk) 20:02, 3 March 2019 (UTC)

Hallo Multichill, alles prima hoor. Met jou? Handig tooltje zeg! Volgens mij heb je gelijk en is dit hetzelfde gebouw. groeten, Rudolphous (talk) 04:51, 4 March 2019 (UTC)

Infobox Category:Apelstein Nr. 02 und 47Edit

Hallo Rudolphus, der Apelstein Nr. 2 hat zwei verschiedene Standorte und auch IDs vom Landesamt für Denkmalpflege: in Leipzig - Liebertwolkwitz 09259764 (

und in Landkreis Leipzig - Güldengossa 09299392 (

Es stehen nämlich an beiden Orten ein Apelstein Nr.2 (der in Liebertwolkwitz ist scheinbar der alte).

Die Bilder in der Kategorie Apelstein Nr.2 ( sind alle von dem in Güldengossa. Es müsste meiner Meinung nach also auch die Infobox auf den Stein in Güldengossa hinweisen, oder?

Beim Apelstein Nr. 47 stimmt in der Infobox die Ortsangabe nicht - es ist nicht der Landkreis Bautzen, sondern Landkreis Leipzig.
