Multiple renaming to fix obvious errors[edit]

In Category:H44 Ary Rongel (ship, 1981) please rename all files that refer to "Ary Rangel". The correct name is Ary Rongel. De728631 (talk) 17:30, 12 April 2015 (UTC)

I don't know of an existing safe method to batch-rename files in a category, nor is it in the scope of my bot. So ✓ added {{rename}} to them all. --Zhuyifei1999 (talk) 11:11, 13 April 2015 (UTC)
Thank you. Obviously this worked, too. De728631 (talk) 18:09, 17 April 2015 (UTC)

Retrieving images from Gallica[edit]

Hi, This is not a one-time task, but a permanent available tool is needed. JeanBono‎ had such a tool, but it doesn't work any more (see [1]). Regards, There also was such a tool on the Toolserver at [2] (by Kolossos). The script is available at s:fr:Wikisource:Gallica/gallica.php. This is needed to retrieve high resolution images from Gallica, the French National Library. See also [3] (in French). Does anyone with an account in the Labs could make this available again? Thanks in advance, Yann (talk) 10:16, 19 April 2015 (UTC)

My tool works, but you have to upload manually files retrieved (so, to have an access to the files on the server ; displaying huge JPG files with "Content-Type: image/jpg" isn't a good idea). Since I don't have time (and help about uploading on Commons using PHP), I couldn't finish what I started on the labs. JeanBono (talk) 07:59, 20 April 2015 (UTC)
Could anyone help here please? Yann (talk) 17:46, 5 May 2015 (UTC)
Does the script itself does not work or it is because of "No webservice"? If last one, the maintainer should restart the webservice and set up bigbrother for autorestart. --Steinsplitter (talk) 11:36, 6 May 2015 (UTC)

230k SUL user renames by User:Maintenance script[edit]

This is a continuation of the discussion on the Commons:Village pump. In short User:Maintenance script renamed 230k users lately as a part of SUL cleanup. The following moved pages were used as templates and are broken now, some of them are licenses. The pages on the left are transcluded somewhere and were moved to the new location on the right. I fixed bunch of those but could use some help with the rest. Thos not running bots can also help with the rarely transcluded templates on the bottom. When I alter file pages I try to make sure that the resulting file has {{Information}} template and license template added directly to the file. --Jarekt (talk) 14:26, 24 April 2015 (UTC)

Category:Files uploaded by Russavia (rename)[edit]

Strips out the Category:Files uploaded by Russavia (rename) from all files in this category:Media requiring renaming without the related template and sub categories, but not from files that are only in Category:Files uploaded by Russavia (rename), of course, that is in category:Media requiring renaming without the related template too. category:Media requiring renaming without the related template are all files to be renamed organized by subject while Category:Files uploaded by Russavia (rename) is a maintenance category to be emptied. Sometimes after categorizing a file correctly people (and me too) forgets to strip out the Category:Files uploaded by Russavia (rename). Thanks--Pierpao.lo (listening) 07:47, 25 April 2015 (UTC)

Set pictures to personal category[edit]

Hi,

could you please set category Category:Files by Cheva to all files, where Cheva in the description template is the author.--Juandev (talk) 07:42, 26 April 2015 (UTC)

Category:Pictures by Heather Cowper[edit]

Hi, Could someone add this category to all files from https://www.flickr.com/photos/heatheronhertravels/ [4] (first 40 done). In addition, could the links to her blog in each description be removed (spamming IMO), and =={{int:filedesc}}== and =={{int:license-header}}== added when missing? More pictures from this stream could also be uploaded here. Thanks, Yann (talk) 17:51, 5 May 2015 (UTC)
