Citroën DS 1976 (camera car).jpg[edit]

Are you really sure File:Citroën DS 1976 (camera_car).jpg is a Citroën DS? Citroën DS looks pretty different: File:1975_Citroen_DS.JPG. -- Basilicofresco (msg) 13:22, 18 June 2010 (UTC)

Hello, the camera automobile is a DS, but is hidden by the guy at the right. The visible part of car is a Peugeot 504, used as a movie set. I have modified the image description to make things clearer (it is a pity I did not shoot the front of the car...). .:DS (shhht...):. 11:48, 19 June 2010 (UTC)

File:Pultusk meteorite strewnfield.png[edit]

There is an error report on your illustration File:Pultusk meteorite strewnfield.png. One of the users from pl:wiki explains, that (according to press reports from thea date of the impact) the Pultusk meteorite travelled form SW to NE, which is quite opposite to the arrow direction on your illustration. There are newspaper facsimiles at [1] (in Polish). Could you check it up, and possibly correct the error? Regards, Mulat (talk) 11:54, 23 March 2011 (UTC)

DougBot[edit]

Thanks for bringing my attention back to my request. I've made the test run as requested after a little mind changing on my part as to how much I was going to do in one shot. At first I thought to do a simple edit just to demonstrate but then decided to fix the whole issue at once and created the autocatting template and applied it with the bot. Along the way, I managed to find at least two bugs in replace.py.--User:Doug(talk contribs) 12:32, 7 December 2011 (UTC)

Bot fixes[edit]

Hi Basilicofresco,

This fix seems to break a category name. Obviously, the name Category:Row houses in Washington, D.C, isn't ideal. Category:Row houses in Washington, D.C (currently no category description page) has already 113 entries.

That change seems to break the attribution requirement. --  Docu  at 22:19, 29 May 2012 (UTC) (edited)

The first issue is not actually an error: it is the best guess to fix a problem. In this particular case it is not enough, but at least it attracts the attention and therefore the category can be fixed. I will fix the trailing comma on sunday. The second issue instead is less obvious: the link points the very same page, it is clickable in the very same way, reports the same text description, if you copy and paste the attribution in word processor the result is the same: the attribution is intact. In my opinions looks good, what is the problem? -- Basilicofresco (msg) 23:24, 29 May 2012 (UTC)
The first fix is a problem. I don't think the fixes should run within category names.
I would have thought the expand fix would have an effect on the "Use this file on the web" button, but oddly it doesn't. Maybe both versions are a problem with that script in general. --  Docu  at 03:09, 30 May 2012 (UTC)
The gadget can't read the wikitext. It's assembling the information from some special HTML-fields that are exposed by the licensing templates and {{information}}. If authors want special attribution, they should use the |attribution=-parameter of the license-templates. -- RE rillke questions? 16:57, 30 May 2012 (UTC)
I'm not sure either if your but should be removing image source links, e.g. here. --  Docu  at 03:28, 30 May 2012 (UTC)

JFYI: There is a block request on COM:AN/B for your bot. -- RE rillke questions? 16:57, 30 May 2012 (UTC)

I'm very sorry for the delay. I stopped the bot. I will fix it on sunday, as soon I will come back home. -- Basilicofresco (msg) 10:38, 1 June 2012 (UTC)

On 30 and 31 I was less responsive than usual because I was taking some intercontinental flights in a row... Next time I will stop the bot even if everything seems going well. -- Basilicofresco (msg) 17:07, 8 June 2012 (UTC)

Issue "fixing the category name"[edit]

Also category names gets misspelled. Nevertheless I will check the edits in order to evaluate costs/benefits. -- Basilicofresco (msg) 17:07, 8 June 2012 (UTC)

Fixings on cagegories will be performed manually. -- Basilicofresco (msg) 04:42, 9 July 2012 (UTC)

Issue "conversion of fake external links"[edit]

About the conversion of fake external links (to ns0, ns6 and ns14) in wikilinks, I took a look at this one and I do not understand exactly why the "long link in the wikisource" version should be better than the "wikilink in the wikisource" version. I mean for example the source field is already a wikilink and if you click on "Use this file on the web" with the FrescoBot version in the author field you read "...based on Image:Granada - Mapa municipal.svg created by Emilio..." instead of "...based on [1] created by Emilio...". I took a look also here and I saw no problems or differences. Anyway, can we open a discussion about it? I have no interest in edits that do not help the project so it is important to understand what is the better solution. -- Basilicofresco (msg) 17:07, 8 June 2012 (UTC)

One week ago I asked in Commons:Village pump/Copyright#Conversion of fake external links within attribution or source and nobody found any problem with the conversion of fake external links within attribution or source fields. I think it was the most appropriate place. If there will be no objections during the next week, I will start again the link syntax fixing script. -- Basilicofresco (msg) 06:33, 23 June 2012 (UTC)

Syntax fix by FrescoBot[edit]

Hello Basilicofresco, this syntax fix by your bot caused the disappearance of the entire description section, problaby due to a syntax error occuring now in the template, which is caused by the strange characters in the web link. Maybe you could have a look at this. Thank you very much, best wishes --Hareinhardt (talk) 23:40, 1 June 2012 (UTC)

The problem occours when there are = inside the translated text (inside or outside a link). The odd thing is that inside [[ ]] the equals are ignored. The page was well fixed by Docu. I will improve my script in order to check and fix also this problem and avoid similar situations. Thank you. -- Basilicofresco (msg) 15:57, 8 June 2012 (UTC)

Welcome, Dear Filemover![edit]

Commons File mover.svg

Hi Basilicofresco, you're now a filemover. When moving files please respect the following advice:

  • Use the CommonsDelinker link in the {{rename}} template to order a bot to replace all ocurrences of the old title with the new one.
  • Please do not tag redirects as {{speedy}}. Other projects, like InstantCommons, might be using the file even though they don't show up in the global usage. Deleting the redirects would break their file references.
  • Please know and follow the file rename guidelines.
--Sreejith K (talk) 18:55, 16 June 2012 (UTC)

Geograph[edit]

Hi Basilicofresco,

If you edit geograph descriptions, you might want to include the cleanup suggested at Commons:Bots/Work_requests/Archive_5#.C2.93_and_.C2.94. --  Docu  at 11:46, 17 June 2012 (UTC)

Thank you for the suggestion! Did you notice any other invisible character in these descriptions? -- Basilicofresco (msg) 12:51, 17 June 2012 (UTC)
Well these are visible ;)
They could probably be replaced with a " or ''
A thing that is generally missing IMHO, is a colon or a full stop after the title of the image when repeated in the description (sample: diff, title is "Tall Ships event, Belfast" (also in the filename), it is followed by "Looking across the Lagan"). --  Docu  at 12:58, 17 June 2012 (UTC)
Also, in the meantime, {{int:license}} should be {{int:license-header}} --  Docu  at 13:03, 17 June 2012 (UTC)

Well, these characters are not visible on my system with Firefox or Chrome, they are visible only with IE. So, along with these link fixes, now I'm going to add also the full stop and replace (outside the links):

  • “ and ” with "
  • ’ (U+0092) with '
  • {{int:license}} with {{int:license-header}}

Basilicofresco (msg) 13:34, 17 June 2012 (UTC)

Sounds good. Thanks for fixing them. --  Docu  at 13:50, 17 June 2012 (UTC)

Too slow?[edit]

Hi Basilicofresco,

Just to let you know that I mentioned your bot at Commons_talk:Bots. If you plan on finishing the geograph cleanup in the near future, it should probably run at a much faster pace. --  Docu  at 10:03, 7 July 2012 (UTC)

No-op fix by FrescoBot?[edit]

Check out this strange edit your bot made. I can't see any difference between the revisions, although apparently MediaWiki can. Any idea? -- Phyzome is Tim McCormack 22:43, 18 July 2012 (UTC)

It is not easy to see the difference: there was an invisible misplaced control character (ltr mark) between "Cyatheales" and "]]". This invisible character causes problems for example with some category tools. If you cut and paste "Cyatheales‎]]" and try to use backspace on it you will notice the invisible character. -- Basilicofresco (msg) 00:51, 19 July 2012 (UTC)
Well, I'll be damned! So there is. -- Phyzome is Tim McCormack 03:28, 19 July 2012 (UTC)

I've blocked FrescoBot due to it breaking links[edit]

Hello, I've decided to block your bot for the time beeing, as it's breaking links, as seen at Revision of File:US Navy 111026-N-OY799-125 Sailors stand lee helmsman and helmsman in the bridge aboard the Nimitz-class aircraft carrier USS John C. Stennis (CVN rectlinearized.jpg. We can't change link targets without as well fix the original filename it points to. AzaToth 10:30, 22 July 2012 (UTC)

You are right, surprisingly I forgot to consider this case. I just added it to bot exclusions. I'm tracing back this kind of occurrences in order to revert any improper edit. -- Basilicofresco (msg) 11:22, 22 July 2012 (UTC)
I found all the affected pages: reverted 8 edits. Thank you for pointing it out! -- Basilicofresco (msg) 16:23, 22 July 2012 (UTC)
I've unblocked the bot now. AzaToth 17:31, 22 July 2012 (UTC)

What on earth?[edit]

Hi! See User:FrescoBot/Misplaced invisible LTR marks -- Basilicofresco (msg) 09:07, 25 July 2012 (UTC)

Read the link and still fail to see what this bot is doing: http://commons.wikimedia.org/w/index.php?title=File:Doric_Temple_Athena_Lindos.jpg&diff=75097724&oldid=70073802 — Preceding unsigned comment added by Saffron Blaze (talk • contribs) 22:43, 29 lug 2012‎ (UTC)

Take a look at this link, you will see what characters are present in "Lindia‎]]". -- Basilicofresco (msg) 06:05, 30 July 2012 (UTC)
I think the question is, how on earth the invisible sign comes between a and ] and why typing a] sometimes gives ainvisble sign that I not typed]? --Martin H. (talk) 18:42, 30 July 2012 (UTC)
I was wondering about that as well. Maybe it's inserted due to the sign being present in some MediaWiki message or HotCat code and gets pasted along when copying categories. --  Docu  at 20:06, 30 July 2012 (UTC)
I suspect in my case the code was introduced via copy/paste actions, as I distinctly remember copy/passting that title into the uploader text field. Saffron Blaze (talk) 21:52, 30 July 2012 (UTC)

An interesting edit from bare link to a ref[edit]

Howdy. Your bot recently made this edit. I think the previous version was better. What are your thoughts on this?--Rockfang (talk) 06:57, 21 August 2012 (UTC)

You are right. In this case (fake external link, without text, at the end of a sentence, at the end of a section) on Commons is better to use brackets than refs. Fixed, thank you. -- Basilicofresco (msg) 18:22, 21 August 2012 (UTC)

Round 1 of Picture of the Year 2013 is open![edit]

2012 Picture of the Year: A pair of European Bee-eaters in Ariège, France.

Dear Wikimedians,

Wikimedia Commons is happy to announce that the 2013 Picture of the Year competition is now open. This year will be the eighth 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 (2013) 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 are all 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.

For your convenience, we have sorted the images into topical categories. Two rounds of voting will be held: In the first round, you may vote for as many images as you like. The top 30 overall and the most popular image in each category will continue to the final. In the final round, you may vote for just one image to become the Picture of the Year.

Round 1 will end on . Click here to learn more and vote »

Thanks,
the Wikimedia Commons Picture of the Year committee

El nino north american weather.png and others[edit]

Hi,

I've noticed that your bot has made changes to the categories of some of the images I follow. When I look at the edit, I cannot see what is the difference (for instance https://commons.wikimedia.org/w/index.php?title=File:El_nino_north_american_weather.png&curid=3737997&diff=117037490&oldid=77745526). Could you tell me what has been modified?

Hi! The bot is removing invisible LTR characters, take a look here. -- Basilicofresco (msg) 23:19, 22 February 2014 (UTC)

Helmet from Vendel.jpg‎[edit]

Hello. May I ask, what exactly did the bot do here: [2] ? Thank you. Jan Kameníček (talk) 12:39, 10 March 2014 (UTC)

Just curious about a bot edit of yours[edit]

Hi there, I was just curious about a bot edit of yours. There is nothing is wrong, im just curious what the edit actually did because visually i cant tell. Here's the diff. In the file history it says the edit removed 3 bytes. Again, just me being curious. Thanks, Dainomite (talk) 03:37, 2 May 2014 (UTC)

Hi! The bot removed an invisible LTR special character, take a look here. This fix is part of a larger set of fixes so at the moment I can't use a more specific edit summary... but I understand it can be confusing. I will try to solve the problem. -- Basilicofresco (msg) 06:11, 2 May 2014 (UTC)

Rationale for the edits of your bot?[edit]

Hello Basilicofresco! Currently your bot is editing nearly all of my images, only one example. What exactly is the rationale for the edits? When I take a look into the diffs I do not see any relevant differences. Why are there illegal characters in the category names of my images? What can I do to avoid these characters in the future? I usually use Cat a lot of categorization. --Tuxyso (talk) 09:22, 5 May 2014 (UTC)

Hi! The bot removed an invisible LTR character, take a look here and here. For example in that case in "(Essen)‎]]" there is a misplaced special character between (Essen) and ]]. I believe that the main reason for these LTR characters inside the category links are copy/paste actions from a category list. However recently they are getting more and more frequent, so I'm wondering if there are other sources. Do you remember if you inserted these categories by coping/pasting from a category page? If you copy and paste [[Category:Exterior of Alte Synagoge (Essen)‎]] inside this webpage you will be able to see it as U200E character. This proble should not happen with automated tools without coping/pasting.... can you confirm it? -- Basilicofresco (msg) 07:12, 7 May 2014 (UTC)

User:FrescoBot[edit]

Although I see the usefulness of this task, I don't think your bot should touch author fields. Thanks for running it anyway,    FDMS  4    17:50, 26 June 2014 (UTC)

Please fix this issue!    FDMS  4    21:33, 10 September 2014 (UTC)
The bot will skip it, but it makes no sense. The author field is not black magic: if there is a typo and fixing it does not affect the meaning of the attribution then we should fix it. -- Basilicofresco (msg) 22:10, 10 September 2014 (UTC)

Meteoriti[edit]

Ciao Basilico, grazie dell'interessante segnalazione! Premesso che tutto quello che so di mineralogia sono reminescenze di scuola media, porendo atto con piacere di quelle che mi segnali. Magari posso solo dire che una categoria Ataxite ecc, per quanto possa essere banale, potrebbe essere utile crearla comunque, fosse solo per poterla collegare agli articoli di wikipedia, casomai qualcuno volesse cercare più immagini sull'argomento. Veniamo ora nel dettaglio:

Non sapendo il significato di quelle sigle non le ho trascritte nel nome, ma adesso che me lo hai fatto notare starò più attento in futuro

  • Altre? Ti segnalo che fotografai alcune meteoriti anche nel museo di mineralogia di Firenze, non so se siano categorizzate bene. Sono questi primi 3 files. --Sailko (talk) 20:23, 19 July 2014 (UTC)

What does your bot do???[edit]

Hi Smile.

I don't really understand what you Frescobot is doing... For two of the files of my WL it's the same before and after, no difference...

1, 2.

Can you please explain? Smiley.svg Thank you. --Llann .\m/ (Lie 2 me ...) 04:11, 29 August 2014 (UTC)

Hi! The bot removed an invisible LTR character, take a look here and here. I will improve the scripts in order to label as "misplaced invisible LTR marks" all the edits related to these invisible characters. At the moment some of these edits are still labelled just as "link syntax" and it is not enough clear. -- Basilicofresco (msg) 09:25, 30 August 2014 (UTC)
OK, let's see... --Llann .\m/ (Lie 2 me ...) 16:32, 8 September 2014 (UTC)
