U.S. Marines Corps[edit]

http://www.marines.mil/news/Pages/photos.aspx - I guess up to ~90.000 public domain pictures. I like to import them. Will that be ok? Any suggestions?

Opinions[edit]

Symbol support vote.svg Support good idea but check out with other batch uploads (especally Navy) that u don't upload all pics twice. Eventually use the VRIN or check if there is another way to find duplicates.--Sanandros (talk) 14:07, 21 August 2012 (UTC)

I checking the images and ~60000 has a usable VRIN. But ~22000 do not have a valid VRIN. What about that images? Upload this too? And what about images there is not a author or description? (I didnt count yet)--Slick (talk) 15:16, 5 October 2012 (UTC)

Hmm can u tell show me some of these pics? Do they have exif? Usually they put also a lot of information in the exif.--Sanandros (talk) 22:29, 8 November 2012 (UTC)

Question: I downloadet all images and store it, the source url and other information on my disk. Before I start to upload the images the marines have redesign the webpage now. So now all source links will broken before I upload the images. It is not possible to find new links to the already downloadet images. (and it looks like most of the images are no more online in the new gallery). I only can add not exists links to the images I can upload. I am unsure to upload the images without a valid source. What I do now? --Slick (talk) 19:38, 1 November 2012 (UTC)

Again I refer on exif a lot of pics have exif where there are at least written who took the pic and if thei have a rank then they are PD.-Sanandros (talk) 22:29, 8 November 2012 (UTC)

Again, hundreds of images from this site are still on Commons. A duplicate check should be done before the images get uploaded. --High Contrast (talk) 21:13, 8 November 2012 (UTC)

I removed all dups I can found before uploading (by VRIN). If there were an VRIN it is add to the description and the filename. (Because the sort order in the categorie, most files without VRIN comes first. So do not wonder.) Sometimes some information (date, creator, description) is missing (not given by the source / exif). Upload starts up now. --Slick (talk) 14:04, 2 December 2012 (UTC)
