Rename requestEdit

Renamed File:Miscellaneous Papers on Mechanical Subjects.djvu. If you need these put in place for work at WS, then drop a line on my talk page, and I will attempt to expedite the rename process. By the way, for future files, it would be useful it you were able to lose the Google page at the front. I use DjVuLibre for the task (when I remember). — billinghurst sDrewth 10:04, 7 March 2010 (UTC)

Thank you! I should've cleaned up the file, but I wasn't quite sure of the usual practice. I'll do so, and re-upload it, before I start transcribing anything (so the page numbering doesn't get mucked up). — Sam Wilson ( TalkContribs ) … 10:44, 7 March 2010 (UTC)

A file that you have uploaded to Wikimedia Commons, File:Fremantle Society logo.jpg, was missing information about where it comes from or who created it, which is needed to verify its copyright status. The file probably has been deleted. If you've got all required information, request undeletion providing this information and the link to the concerned file ([[:File:Fremantle Society logo.jpg]]).

If you created the content yourself, enter {{own}} as the source. If you did not add a licensing template, you must add one. You may use, for example, {{self|GFDL|cc-by-sa-all}} or {{Cc-zero}} to release certain rights to your work.

If someone else created the content, or if it is based on someone else's work, the source should be the address to the web page where you found it, the name and ISBN of the book you scanned it from, or similar. You should also name the author, provide verifiable information to show that the content is in the public domain or has been published under a free license by its author, and add an appropriate template identifying the public domain or licensing status, if you have not already done so.

Please add the required information for this and other files you have uploaded before adding more files. If you need assistance, please ask at the help desk. Thank you!

There seems to be a problem regarding the description and/or licensing of this particular file. It has been found that you've added in the image's description only a Template that's not a license and although it provides useful information about the image, it's not a valid license. Could you please resolve this problem, adding the license in the image linked above? You can edit the description page and change the text. Uploading a new version of the file does not change the description of the file. This page may give you more hints on which license to choose. Thank you.

Commons:Deletion requests/File:2013-08-11 0740 Freopedia plaque at Moore's Building.JPGEdit

[Question copied from DR]
"But the oval plaque isn't by a long shot the subject of the photo. Does that count for anything? I've no idea about the rules of how to feature copyrighted stuff I'm afraid. Surely it's permitted in some forms? I mean, you don't mention the other sign in this photo, so I presume that's okay?" Sam Wilson ( Talk • Contribs ) … 12:27, 11 August 2013 (UTC)

Yes, actually it does count for something, but not enough, see Commons:De minimis. The question here is "what is the subject of the photo". The filename suggests that it is the Freopedia plaque, but that is so small that it is certainly not the principal subject. The Freopedia plaque is there because the Moore Building is historic, so presumably the real subject of the photo is the Moore Building and its historicity. In that context, the plaque describing the building is an important part of the image, so Fastily and I agreed that it was not de minimis. I did not mention the other sign and the sandwich board because neither has enough on it to rise to the level of copyrightable.

There are no hard and fast rules on this and on any given image experienced editors may disagree. If a notable person had been in the image, then the plaque would, in my view, have been de minimis. But in assessing an image taken to show one information plaque you cannot ignore the other, larger, information plaque nearby.

If you have questions, you may ask them at the Village Pump in any of 42 languages or on my talk page. I will also watch for questions here on your talk page for at least a week. .     Jim . . . . (Jameslwoodward) (talk to me) 11:04, 19 August 2013 (UTC)

I have created a few extra categories for when we upload photos from the trip - cheers JarrahTree (talk) 10:54, 13 March 2017 (UTC)

Have been adding cats randomlyEdit

Very 'unsystematic' hope you dont mind - it is one way to get a metric - as in total photos that get uploaded - and the potential for extra articles and things... North Wharf/North Quay seems a bit like Packenham/Pakenham - probably a few seealso/redirect might be in line... JarrahTree (talk) 10:24, 15 March 2017 (UTC)

IA-upload time from djvu creation to upload here?Edit

The bot has done the creation according to the log, though 2½ hr later, still no upload. I am presuming that is not normal. I presume that I have to prod you, there is no instruction on what to do when things stall. Thx.  — billinghurst sDrewth 12:58, 18 March 2017 (UTC)

@Billinghurst: yeah sometimes it hangs and has to be prodded. :-( There are currently no procedures about how to handle this, because I'm looking at it sort of daily to see what's going wrong and hopefully fixing the tool if that's what's at fault. The best thing to do to figure out why it's not uploading is to look at the log; there's a link on the homepage of the tool. What IA item were you trying to upload? I'll have a look at it. — Sam Wilson ( TalkContribs ) … 13:04, 18 March 2017 (UTC)

@Billinghurst: Hm, it looks like it's just running out of memory and not completing. 518 pages is a lot, unforunately. I'll see what can be done. (And it's a tricky one to make it provide better log info about, because it just bombs out and so can't give the script a chance to say anything). — Sam Wilson ( TalkContribs ) … 21:43, 18 March 2017 (UTC)
Wasn't criticising, just indicating that I looked and didn't think that it said so. Can the system count pages and and proportionalately allocate extra memory for jobs? Or even a tick box at form time — when asking about front page y/n — indicating if page count is 400 > 500; 500 > 600; +++ ?  — billinghurst sDrewth 22:31, 18 March 2017 (UTC)
@Billinghurst: I increased the memory allowance of ia-upload and File:Armagh clergy and parishes.djvu got uploaded. Is it correct? In phab:T161396 I'll also add a 500 page limit, or warning. — Sam Wilson ( TalkContribs ) … 03:44, 7 April 2017 (UTC)
After all of that, no text layer. <shrug>  — billinghurst sDrewth 11:19, 7 April 2017 (UTC)

License taggingEdit

Hi Samwilson, I love what the IA-upload bot is doing. One minor thing: I just made this change to the license tag on your example case. Any way to make such manual changes unnecessary, or to coach the bot/user through the process? LeadSongDog (talk) 21:53, 24 March 2017 (UTC)

@LeadSongDog: yes, great idea! I'm not sure about the death date parameter, because that's not very retrievable from IA, but the pre-1923 tag should be doable. Could you open a ticket in Phabricator?

The other thing I've been wondering about is linking the book template with Wikidata, so that if a Wikidata item exists for a given edition then that sort of info can be pulled from there. It'd have to be done via a wikidata_id template parameter, rather than a sitelink, but that should be fine. Then we could get author info, copyright info, as well as sitelinks to Wikisources etc.

I'm not very phab-savy, it might be better if you raised it. Each IA entry should already have an extant OL entry linked, this could be harvested and developed. There's work going on, albeit slowly, to improve the links between OL and Wikidata, e.g. https://github.com/internetarchive/openlibrary/issues/144 which might pertain. Birth and death dates are usually available from VIAF (http://viaf.org/viaf/444796/ or https://viaf.org/viaf/27063124) or ISNI (http://www.isni.org/isni/0000000061343104 or http://www.isni.org/isni/0000000121251077), at least in the case of major authors.

I just used it to upload File:Don_Caesar_de_Bazan.djvu and noted a couple of issues. The template couldn't easily handle multiple authors, though I worked around that as best I could. The google first page issue should really be autodetected and autohandled, I got it wrong and others will too. Still, it was quick and easy. Thank you.LeadSongDog (talk) 20:41, 27 March 2017 (UTC)
@LeadSongDog: I removed the cover page. You're right, it shouldn't be manual; but for the time being I think I'm not going to have the time to do anything else (it'd be possible to run it through the Google Vision API logo-detection thingo, and delete based on that, I suspect; not sure if there would be false positives though, which would be bad). — Sam Wilson ( TalkContribs ) … 23:47, 27 March 2017 (UTC)

You are receiving this message because you voted in R1 of the 2016 Picture of the Year contest.

Dear Samwilson,

Wikimedia Commons is happy to announce that the second round of the 2016 Picture of the Year competition is now open. This year will be the eleventh edition of the annual Wikimedia Commons photo competition, which recognizes exceptional contributions by users on Wikimedia Commons. Wikimedia users are invited to vote for their favorite images featured on Commons during the last year (2016) to produce a single Picture of the Year.

Hundreds of images that have been rated Featured Pictures by the international Wikimedia Commons community in the past year were entered in this competition. These images include professional animal and plant shots, breathtaking panoramas and skylines, restorations of historical images, photographs portraying the world's best architecture, impressive human portraits, and so much more.

There are two total rounds of voting. In the first round, you voted for as many images as you liked. In Round 1, there were 1475 candidate images. There are 58 finalists in Round 2, comprised of the top 30 overall as well as the top #1 and #2 from each sub-category.

In the final round, you may vote for just one or maximal three image to become the Picture of the Year.
