Administrator's assistance

This is a place where users can communicate with administrators, or administrators with one another. You can report vandalism, problematic users, or anything else that needs an administrator's intervention. Do not report child pornography or other potentially illegal content here; e-mail legal-reports@wikimedia.org instead. If reporting threatened harm to self or others also email emergency@wikimedia.org.

CAT:LR[edit]

Hi fellow admins,

We have +600 images (550 as of the time you're reading this page) waiting for review. If you can take 5 minutes to review images, that will help reducing backlog. (Note: for *.tistory.com images, go to bottom of the source file, and scroll down, and find BY icon or BY-SA icon on bottom right side. Version is -2.0-KR, per COM:사랑방#티스토리에서 올려진 사진들의 CCL 버전에 대한 의문. When unsure, feel free to ask me.)

I will take care of images from Bollywood Hungama‎. Thanks for reminder. Regards, Yann (talk) 09:42, 31 October 2014 (UTC)
Two Picasa files were cropped, somebody with admin rights can update the "bot didn't find it" tags (1, 2). –Be..anyone (talk) 05:23, 1 November 2014 (UTC)
Seems done by Jkadavoor. Next time, please crop it after review bot has run. (IIRC, it is set to run every ten minutes.) — revimsg 05:54, 1 November 2014 (UTC)
Yes, good trick to convince the bot, but it would eat too much of my limited mobile broadband bandwidth. –Be..anyone (talk) 07:38, 1 November 2014 (UTC)

Now it's almost exceeding 1,000! Please help them by reviewing some...  revimsg 10:31, 15 November 2014 (UTC)

Perhaps we need a tool similar to DelReqHandler that would allow us to check the license at Flickr or elsewhere and then add the tag in one click without the several pageloads now required. .     Jim . . . . (Jameslwoodward) (talk to me) 13:42, 19 November 2014 (UTC)
We already have two JavaScripts (not a gadget - see COM:LR) that helps admins/reviewers to pass or fail the LRs, but it only works when you are in the file description page.  revimsg 13:52, 19 November 2014 (UTC)


Commons Delinker command help[edit]

Not sure why this here didn't work?

Thank you, -- Cirt (talk) 04:19, 21 November 2014 (UTC)

See notes: Note: To avoid World War III, CommonsDelinker will ignore a command to replace an image if the new image is svg and the original is not. — Revi 04:49, 21 November 2014 (UTC)

Failed Flickr Uploads[edit]

One user uploaded a whole bunch of images and maybe 25-32 images failed to upload properly as you can see. I reuploaded only 2 images as in this case but can an Admin decide what to do with the others. There is just too many for one person to deal with sadly and I have to sign off soon. I don't understand why some users transfer large amounts of images to Commons without making sure that the images were properly uploaded sadly. Best, --Leoboudv (talk) 06:09, 21 November 2014 (UTC)

✓ Done deleted & reuploaded --Steinsplitter (talk) 07:59, 21 November 2014 (UTC)
  • Thanks for all your help. Regards, --Leoboudv (talk) 18:55, 21 November 2014 (UTC)

help needed[edit]

File:Nanyue001.png, the original upload version was written in Chinese, but was changed into Vietnamese by User:I Love Triệu Đà. I think it's really unsuitable, these two versions SHOULD BE slipt into two files.

This file was used in the Chinese good article zh:南越国. Most Chinese cannot know Vietnamese. So I think it should be slipt into two files immediately.--122.90.100.105 02:24, 22 November 2014 (UTC)

✓ Done (sort of). Vietnamese version at File:Bản đồ các quận phía Đông Bắc nước Nam Việt.png but moving the file has resulted in some pages using the Vietnamese version, not the Chinese version, so you will need to rectify this manually. Nick (talk) 02:36, 22 November 2014 (UTC)

New pictures uploaded after deletion request[edit]

we will have Commons:Deletion requests/Files in Category:Children's Peace Monument and there are uploaded new versions to Category:Children's Peace Monument, how about those--Motopark (talk) 14:35, 22 November 2014 (UTC)
