CommonsDelinker SummaryEdit

Hi, last week i updated bn:ব্যবহারকারী:CommonsDelinker/summary-I18n but CommonsDelinker still use old summary. Do you know why & how can i fix it? Thanks. --Aftabuzzaman (talk) 17:59, 9 March 2018 (UTC)

@Magnus Manske: Eine Idee? Wegen dem Namensraum oder das Encoding?^^--Steinsplitter (talk) 18:02, 9 March 2018 (UTC)
Just for explanation: I updated because now mediawiki support more than 255 character for edit summary. Previously mediawiki supported only 93 character for bnwiki. --Aftabuzzaman (talk) 18:27, 9 March 2018 (UTC)
Maybe it is just a caching issue. But i have no time right now to look into. --Steinsplitter (talk) 18:46, 9 March 2018 (UTC)

Request for UnblockEdit

One of your blocks (user:Falconfly) is requesting unblock as OTRS Ticket:2018030510012411, as he cannot edit his talk page. Would you like to answer? Ronhjones  (Talk) 00:42, 11 March 2018 (UTC)

@Ronhjones: He was rude to other users, misused his talkpage access, was disruptive (personal attacks included, not going to link), made legal legal threats. Therefore i don't think he should be unblocked and it talkpage access shouldn't be restored neither, because he abused it in the past. CC: @Ankry, Jeff G., FunkMonk: Last but not least: He is currently blocked on 4 wikis. --Steinsplitter (talk) 08:32, 11 March 2018 (UTC)
He is pretty unrepentant. See my English Wikipedia talk page.[1] FunkMonk (talk) 10:55, 11 March 2018 (UTC)
No problem. I'll reply Ronhjones  (Talk) 16:16, 11 March 2018 (UTC)
@Ronhjones, FunkMonk, and Steinsplitter: Please do not unblock without a full apology to each person offended, including me.   — Jeff G. ツ please ping or talk to me 19:11, 11 March 2018 (UTC)


Hallo Steinsplitter, könntest Du mir bitte darüber Auskunft geben, ob diese Seite flickr2commons in Bearbeitung ist oder eine neue Seite verfügbar ist, um Bilder von Flickr in commons zu stellen. Dank für Deine Mühe und Grüße. Orchi (talk) 12:20, 11 March 2018 (UTC)

Die Seite sollte eigendlich funktonieren. --Steinsplitter (talk) 12:28, 11 March 2018 (UTC)
...danke für den Hinweis. Offensichtlich streikt diese Seite auf meinem (immer) benutzten Browser opera 12.18 seit einigen Tagen. Z.B. im Firefox öffnet sich die Seite. Gruß. Orchi (talk) 14:01, 11 March 2018 (UTC)


Thank you for the quick renaming. There is one little but. The extension is ogg, not oga. If u like to change that too, I'll be thankful! --SE (talk) 17:44, 11 March 2018 (UTC) Hi, The correct one is .oga as per --Steinsplitter (talk) 18:01, 11 March 2018 (UTC)
Yes, but Wiktionary doesn't support that yet. So could you change that? --SE (talk) 19:15, 11 March 2018 (UTC) Not really, MediaWiki:Gadget-AjaxQuickDelete.js (switch at line 1125) enforces the oga when moving such files. But it should work on Wiktionary, at lest for me it work there. Do you have a example where it does not work? --Steinsplitter (talk) 19:22, 11 March 2018 (UTC)
I think, it's working. It was the extension. I forgot to change it. Is this now the replacement of .ogg? If so, they need to replace that too in all of the articles, unless it will not die any time soon? --SE (talk) 19:43, 11 March 2018 (UTC)
It should work without replacing as well, and it will not die any time soon. :) --Steinsplitter (talk) 14:52, 12 March 2018 (UTC)

Template:Extracted fromEdit

Servus. Weißt du, was da passiert ist? Kommt das evtl. aus Fallback? De728631 (talk) 21:34, 11 March 2018 (UTC)

Hmm, jetzt funktioniert es wieder. Da wurde kurzfristig in dem fertigen Template Wikicode angezeigt, der irgendwas mit LangSwitch zu tun hatte. Halt eine Abfrage für Sprachen. De728631 (talk) 22:03, 11 March 2018 (UTC)


Hallo Steinsplitter, kannst du mir bitte mal helfen? Ich hab mich getraut, mal Special:AbuseFilter/171 zu editieren, und eigentlich hätte er File:Download link.png finden sollen. Hat er aber nicht. Schau doch gelegentlich mal drüber, danke! Gruß, --Achim (talk) 21:02, 12 March 2018 (UTC)

@Achim55: Ich dachte erst mw liest den regex nicht richtig (weil deiner funktioniert), habe dann gesehen das user_age = 0 gesetzt ist. Desshalb wird der edit nicht getaggt. Also, aktuell werden nur anon edits getaggt. Ich glaube das sollte man auf neue Nutzer ausweiten? --Steinsplitter (talk) 12:20, 13 March 2018 (UTC)
Danke, hat geklappt. --Achim (talk) 14:26, 13 March 2018 (UTC)

File:Bundesverwaltungsgericht, Leipzig, 180222, ako.jpgEdit

Hi, not sure what you tried to achieve here. The file is currently in Category:Files with no machine-readable license. This category has to be checked regularly (about every week) by hand, file by file, because many files that are uploaded without a license are not detected by the bots. So if we allow files with a valid license to be in that category, we are basically frustrating the process of detecting files without a valid license. Jcb (talk) 15:40, 13 March 2018 (UTC)

@Jcb: See my comment here. Plese don't create DR's (Commons:Deletion requests/File:Bundesverwaltungsgericht, Leipzig, 180222, ako.jpg) to make a COM:POINT. Maybe your behavior should be discussed at AN/U. --Steinsplitter (talk) 16:01, 13 March 2018 (UTC)
How do licenses qualify as machine-readable?   — Jeff G. ツ please ping or talk to me 16:55, 13 March 2018 (UTC)
You have to add some markers to the license template, so that other tools can read it. --Steinsplitter (talk) 17:00, 13 March 2018 (UTC)

Vielen Dank für Deine Hilfe hier! --Code (talk) 18:30, 13 March 2018 (UTC)

First structured licensing conversation on CommonsEdit


The first conversation about structured copyright and licensing for Structured Data on Commons has been posted, please come by and participate. The discussion will be open through the end of the month (March). Thank you. -- Keegan (WMF) (talk) 17:26, 16 March 2018 (UTC)

Bot failing - bug fix neededEdit

Please see your bot in the process of renaming files has mixed up descriptions, corrupted a video file and lost another. All about 12 months ago, it'll need to fixed and and checked to make sure it hasnt done similar things with other files Gnangarra 02:32, 20 March 2018 (UTC)

@Gnangarra: Something got wrong during the move on the server side (media wiki file storage backend), you have to report it at phabricator: because it needs a fix upstream, there is nothing i can do. --Steinsplitter (talk) 11:40, 20 March 2018 (UTC)

Category:Photographs by Vinayaraj V REdit

I was adding this user category, Category:Photographs by Vinayaraj V R to files created by User:Vinayaraj on his request. But he has 30,510 "own works" and search is not working after 10,000. This is the second time I faced this problem after Category:Photographs by Dinesh Valke when you helped me with your bot. It will be very helpful if you can add the remaining files to his category, Category:Photographs by Vinayaraj V R. Jee 14:40, 20 March 2018 (UTC)

Did a few, will do the rest tomorrow. --Steinsplitter (talk) 19:21, 20 March 2018 (UTC)
Thanks! Jee 02:38, 21 March 2018 (UTC)
@Jkadavoor: Done. --Steinsplitter (talk) 11:40, 22 March 2018 (UTC)
Thanks again! This is very helpful. Jee 13:09, 22 March 2018 (UTC)


Hallo Stein, ein IP-Benutzer aus Italien hat sich mehrfach über die Umbenennungen beschwert, die Arbalete auf Commons vorgenommen hat. Es gab dazu einen Thread auf COM/AN, der aber im Sand verlaufen ist, sowie eine kurze Nachricht auf dem Vandalismusboard. Nun hat der IP-Nutzer u. a. Taivo und mich persönlich kontaktiert. Da es zu dem Problem offenbar eine Vorgeschichte mit Sockenpuppen und Sperrungen auf ITWIKI gibt, sind wir der Meinung, dass du wegen deiner Sprachkenntnisse eventuell die Sache auf Commons untersuchen solltest. Und weil deine Disk-Seite geschützt ist, kann sich der anonyme Kollege nicht selbst melden. Was meinst du dazu? De728631 (talk) 15:27, 22 March 2018 (UTC)

Hi, Muss mich da erst einlesen, kann etwas dauern. --Steinsplitter (talk) 16:05, 22 March 2018 (UTC)
Bei Cirié/Ciriè hat meine recherche ergeben das de-jure Cirié und de-facto Ciriè 1. Ist tricky, eb nimmt È. Bei Presseaussendungen der Gemeinden wird é verwendet. Die Vorgeschichte muss ich erst lesen. --Steinsplitter (talk) 16:23, 22 March 2018 (UTC)
@Steinsplitter: I'm now able to contact you in your talk, I was told you're an admin who can deal with Italian linguistic issues. Well, I'll explain here: first, Arbalete is an Italian vandal who was blocked for damaging Wikipedia to sustain his opinions and who anonymised himself with German IPs again and again to bypass the block but was blocked again and again; second, despite in all projects Cirié has always been spelled like that and despite Cirié is the correct spelling which is used in the municipal site (Città di Cirié) and even in the municipal statute (Statuto del Comune di Cirié), Arbalete has arbitrarily and without consulting anyone moved all the categories and files with this name to Ciriè, changing the accent because, either from his "point of view" (POV) or because of his lack of knowledge about Italian language conventions, he sustains that every Italian name ending with accented E must have the grave accent, which would mean that no Italian name with the stress on final E can have the sound /e/, which is not only false but also absurd... What do you think about these 2 issues, that is this vandal's behaviour and the correctness of the sourced spelling Cirié?
2A01:7C8:AAAE:2B3:4890:8C4:91BA:B2D6 09:39, 23 March 2018 (UTC)

@De728631, Taivo: I've done as you advised me, I asked Steinsplitter for help because he should be able to deal with such issues... Well, you've been more helpful than him just saying you couldn't help me: at least you both bothered to reply my messages. 2A01:7C8:AAAE:2B3:85FD:C990:DE33:6BB7 08:00, 26 March 2018 (UTC)

@Ruthven, .snoopy.: Likely the filemove performed by Arbalete should be reverted, as well as the category moved. At least the cat moved should be reverted and discussed at CFD. --Steinsplitter (talk) 13:49, 26 March 2018 (UTC)
As you said, "Cirié/Ciriè" is tricky, but the same happened with Category:Portobuffolè/Category:Portobuffolé (where he might be right, given the sources), Baselga di Piné (where he's not right at all), etc. I'm checking and, eventually, reverting. Thanks --Ruthven (msg) 14:26, 26 March 2018 (UTC)
Actually I've noticed that he's Filemover. How do you suggest to proceed, in order to remove this flag? --Ruthven (msg) 14:35, 26 March 2018 (UTC)
Not sure. Needless to say that he never provides a reason when moving files as required by COM:RENAME. --Steinsplitter (talk) 14:55, 26 March 2018 (UTC)


Der final gesperrte User:HHubi macht als IP lustig weiter. Der sitzt in Köln in einer Behörde hat da wohl unzählige Kommputer zur Verfügung. Ich weiß nichtz ob und wie man dem beikommen kann! --Centenier

@Centenier: Habe die IP gesperrt, kannst du schauen ob man etwas revertieren muss? Wenn weitere IP's kommen bitte melden, vielecht kann man es irgendwie filtern. --Steinsplitter (talk) 17:11, 27 March 2018 (UTC)
wenn notwendig (und wenn ich was finde - ist nicht einfach, weil der ständig die IP Adresse wechselt) mach ich das mit dem revertieren. Der agiert hauptsächlich in den Abbildungen von Rangabzeichen - bevorzugt russische! -- Centenier (talk) 06:21, 28 March 2018 (UTC)


I noticed the bot has rotated File:Tuebingen_Streuobstwiese.jpg from its correct orientation to the wrong orientation. Please undo this. 14:26, 28 March 2018 (UTC)

Reverted. --Steinsplitter (talk) 15:06, 28 March 2018 (UTC)
Report is back. --Steinsplitter (talk) 10:37, 4 April 2018 (UTC)

User:SteinsplitterBot/Previously deleted filesEdit

One of my favourite pages, and seems to have stalled :-( Ronhjones  (Talk) 13:42, 2 April 2018 (UTC)

Looks like the mysql server is really slow and connection to mysql server is lost. We have to wait until the server recovers. --Steinsplitter (talk) 15:54, 2 April 2018 (UTC)

Request to contact STL viewer developersEdit

Hi Steinsplitter,

As you wrote about STL now being supported by Wikimedia, I wonder if you could point me to the relevant person(s) about a possible bug in the Wikimedia model viewer. I'd posted the following on the Computer help-desk but didn't get any replies:

I created a few STL files below and found that artifacts appear in the Wikimedia viewer and occasionally the thumbnail. I've checked that the direction of facet vertices is anticlockwise, the normals are sensible and polygons are not duplicated. It seems to happen more where the polyhedron is thin. All these polyhedra render correctly on . Would anyone know how to fix these artifacts?

cmɢʟee ⋅τaʟκ 15:08, 2 April 2018 (UTC)

@Cmglee: Bugs can be reported at phabricator:, best --Steinsplitter (talk) 15:46, 2 April 2018 (UTC)
Thanks, Steinsplitter. I've done so: cmɢʟee ⋅τaʟκ 00:15, 4 April 2018 (UTC)

Possible abuse filter requestEdit

Hi Steinsplitter. I noticed that you do a lot of abuse filter work and I was wondering what your thoughts are on creating a filter, just to log right now, that looks for people using alamy as a {{copyvio}} deletion reason? This is per Commons:Village pump/Proposals#Add to spam blacklist. Obviously the spam blacklist is not going to happen as that would not be appropriate. We also don't have any data on how often this problem occurs so just having a log right now would be immensely helpful. I'm trying to find a middle ground that will please both sides here and I think a filter might do the trick. Thoughts? --Majora (talk) 19:49, 14 April 2018 (UTC)

We have limited ABF condition therefore i am not a fan of such filters. --Steinsplitter (talk) 07:33, 15 April 2018 (UTC)
I'm sorry but I don't quite understand what you mean. Do you mean there isn't enough limiting there to make a filter worthwhile? Or that it would be a waste of resources? I'm more just looking to see if this is really such a big problem as it is being made out to be. We have no data on this issue. Just some passing problems mentioned at the pump. Do you have any other suggestions as to how we could potentially see if this is as large a problem as it is being made out to be? --Majora (talk) 16:32, 15 April 2018 (UTC)
It would be indeed a wast of resources, see Commons:Abuse filter#Filter_requests, mw:Extension:AbuseFilter/Conditions. --Steinsplitter (talk) 16:35, 15 April 2018 (UTC)

Bad Flickr accountsEdit

Irgendwas stimmt nicht mit der HauptseiteEdit

Hi. Mir scheint, irgendwas stimmt nicht mit der Hauptseite. Zurzeit steht in der Überschrift ziemlich ungeordnet "Wikimedia Commons a collection of 46,303,385 freely usable media files to which anyone can contribute". Bis vor kurzem stand dort "Welcome to Wikimedia Commons" und weiter mit neuer Zeile -- so wie auf diesem Screenshot. Nach der Änderung, die das ausgelöst haben muss, habe ich leider vergeblich gesucht. Hast du eine Idee? Thx --A.Savin 22:40, 19 April 2018 (UTC)
