Programação da wiki[edit]

Podes me indicar alguém responsável pela programação das ferramentas da wiki? desde já grato.--Paulo RS Menezes (talk) 21:10, 14 August 2013 (UTC)

Necessito de uma ferramenta para criar categorias, similar ao que ocorre quando criamos uma nova categoria e clicamos em salvar. Só que neste caso esta ferramenta criaria toda a árvore de categorias a partir de uma categoria básica. veja este diagrama que fiz. [[1]]. A ferramenta que proponho é a seguinte: se informaria o nome da cidade, do estado e do pais e o restante seria criado automaticamente, neste caso partindo da categoria Catholic churches. Como visito muitas cidades do Rio Grande do Sul, na hora de upar da um trabalho enorme criar tudo isso no braço. Tenho conhecimentos de programação e posso contribuir mas para isso necessito falar com alguém que tenha acesso e permissão para isso.--Paulo RS Menezes (talk) 19:34, 16 August 2013 (UTC)

Copyright status of government images in Portugal[edit]

Hi Beria, I'm wondering if you can help me with a question about Portugal. I'd like to upload some images to Commons that were taken by the Policia Judiciaria during their inquiry into the disappearance of Madeleine McCann in 2007. The whole police file was released to the public on DVD by the Ministério Público in 2008, and it included these images that the police took of the apartment she went missing from. Do you know what the copyright status of these images would be, or do you know someone who might know? I asked on Commons:Village pump/Copyright and was told this is Portugal's copyright law, but I can't see whether government files are mentioned in it. Any advice would be really helpful. All the best, SlimVirgin (talk) 20:41, 11 November 2013 (UTC)

Problems regards to CommonsDelinker not renaming, but links have been changed thus breaking articles[edit]

Hi, I just noticed w:Twelve Olympians pop up in Articles with missing files and saw the problem was caused by CommonsDelinker with the change comment " (Replacing Eros_Farnese_MAN_Napoli_6353.jpg with File:_File-Eros_-_Pompeiian_statue_-_Naples_Archeological_Museum.jpg (by Beria because: File renamed: to restore rightfull uploader)" however the file was not renamed? I've seen a few more of these yesterday with other files as well. I'm not sure if its a problem with CommonsDelinker or what, but the effect has been that the original goal of the file rename has failed and a load of articles have being broken! As it was your name on this change i.e. File:Eros Farnese MAN Napoli 6353.jpg I thought I'd point this out before possible more problems are caused. Cheers KylieTastic (talk) 22:11, 11 November 2013 (UTC)

This was probably done to merge some file histories but Beria forgot to remove the instructions for Commons Delinker so the Bot replaced all the files. A small hint for Beria: do not use move&replace for these operations, open move&replace in a new tab/window for the old move function without replacement. --Denniss (talk) 18:59, 12 November 2013 (UTC)

Re-loading File:British Museum Hoxne Hoard Empress Pepper Pot.png[edit]

Hi, please be aware that pngs do not resize nicely. The version I created was intended for specific icon use on wiki project pages and using as thumbnail of a larger image results in blurry outcomes. This icon is just a handy crop from an original full size photograph that I took at the time. Thanks -- (talk) 13:29, 16 November 2013 (UTC)

Chinese man wearing Hanfu in Wikimania 2013.jpg[edit]

Sorry for the distrubing. My friend is a Chinese, not a Japanese. He's living in HongKong actually, and what he is wearing is a kind of traditional clothing of China, called "en:Hanfu", not the Kimono. It's normal to think it is kind of Kimono, because the Japanese learned Kimono from Tang about 1000 years ago, and most Chinese don't wear Hanfu any more. We hope you may correct the name. Sorry for my poor English.--燃玉 (Ranyv) (讨论-talk) 02:17, 18 November 2013 (UTC)

Hi, Beria. He is not a Japanese - as well as I am a Japanese ;)
Would you please rename "File:Japanese man in Wikimania 2013.jpg" into (for example) File:Chinese man wearing Hanfu in Wikimania 2013.jpg or like that? Thanks. --miya (talk) 15:15, 2 January 2014 (UTC)

It seems the difference it EXIF data is misleading. Although we can understand that you shared your camera, not every re-user may not aware of it. The irrevocable CC0 may be an issue for you too. So consider editing or removing them. JKadavoor Jee 05:44, 29 November 2013 (UTC)

Nothing prevents you from using your own attribution and licensing choice; but a conflicting info in EXIF prevents you from suing any if they neglect your choice and follow what provided in EXIF, I afraid. So better remove/edit them. I don't know whether it is possible to mass edit them without uploading a fresh copy over it. Hope Bawolff can help you. Anyway try to remove such info prior to future uploads. Cheers, JKadavoor Jee 02:38, 30 November 2013 (UTC)
I am not aware of any mass tools for changing exif info (If you download them all, you can use exiftool to change the info all in one go, but re-uploaded them all will still be a pain). At the moment, I'm not even aware of any online tool for manipulating the metadata without requiring the photo to be down-and-reuploaded (Which is really something that should be addressed, even if its just something crappy on toollabs). So sorry, I don't really have any useful help. Bawolff (talk) 04:43, 30 November 2013 (UTC)

Foto de convenção do P.M.D.B.[edit]

Gostaria de chamar à sua atenção este (repetido) pedido de recuperação de uma imagem. Esta mostrava parte da platéia numa convenção partidária do P.M.D.B., e era a única da respetiva categoria a mostrar apoiantes anónimos, ao invés de manda-chuva. Apesar de eu ter argumentado com esse ponto, a foto foi apagada, tida por irrelevante e sem interesse enciclopédico (contrastando com o modo como fotos semelhantes de outros países são consideradas), e a sua recuperação subsequentemente pedida foi recusada, por «falta de apoio». Estou, pois, agora alertando utilizadores brasileiros do Commons para que manifestem a sua opinião. -- Tuválkin 02:57, 17 December 2013 (UTC)

Hi[edit]

Hi Beria, I wanted to remind you that reverting edits that are not vandalism without an edit summary is unacceptable, as you did here. I'd also like to point out that this is remarkably ugly. While I don't oppose changes to the header, it's clear they need to be discussed before you make them. Cheers, —Mono 16:57, 20 December 2013 (UTC)

Picture of the Year 2013 R1 Announcement[edit]

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

Cameras for Commons Photographers grants[edit]

Beria would you be interested in being the person who coordinates the online portion of the camera grants if WMF funds the program? I think it would be good for a Commons administrator to have that role. --Pine 06:45, 14 February 2014 (UTC)

Pine: Sure, what I need to do? :D Béria L. Rodríguez msg 16:05, 14 February 2014 (UTC)
I think it will be straightforward. Notify the community when a camera grant is available and set up a way for users to set up nominations for camera grants, then coordinate a vote to decide which nominated user will get a camera grant. I will ask Siko talk with you about how to get this set up. --Pine 20:15, 15 February 2014 (UTC)
Hi Beria and Pine, I think it would take someone who wants to have responsibility for organizing the pilot project from start to finish (including setup on Commons and measuring outcomes, to see if it had any impact), and it makes sense for that person to be a Commons admin. It would probably be doable for WMF grantmaking staff to help facilitate the granting of cameras, if we were given a list of community-selected awardees, and I'd be happy to advise in other places, but we'd want whoever thinks this idea is worth trying to take the lead on the project. I'm still not sure that awarding equipment is going to improve quality or participation on Commons, but I'd be willing to look into an experiment with you. If you're interested, Beria, you might have a look at Pine's original idea and discussion and add your thoughts there? Cheers, Siko (talk) 23:31, 17 February 2014 (UTC)

About your edit on my files for Wikiviajes Venezuela 2014 contest[edit]

Hi Beria, how are you!? I noticed you removed my tags "Category:Wikiviajes por Venezuela 2014", from some of my files, e.g. the file "File:Venezuelan Troupial - Icterus icterus.jpg". The tag was added by me to enter the contest "wikiviajes de venezuela 2014" (http://viajes.wikimedia.org.ve/). Then I read in the rules that only the files uploaded from april 1st 2014 to may 31st 2014 can compete. I guess you removed the tag for that reason? Then I couldn't help but notice other users are using previously uploaded files (out of the allowed time period), but uploading different versions (slightly changed image crop, contrast, etc) of the same picture. See this page: (https://commons.wikimedia.org/w/index.php?title=Category:Wikiviajes_por_Venezuela_2014&filefrom=Atardecer+Llanero.JPG#mw-category-media), and check this two files, the first was uploaded on december 2013, then another file was uploaded on April 14th, to be inside the allowed contest period:

Backlit Margarita Island Sunset in Las Guevaras, Venezuela CaptureNX2.jpg Backlit Margarita Island Sunset in Las Guevaras, Venezuela.jpg

You can see they both have the tag "category: Wikiviajes por Venezuela 2014". To me this seems not appropriate. These files shouldn't compete. They are the same file as the original with slight changes (the rules are the rules: only newly added to commons pictures should compete, so wikipedia gets lots of new pictures of tourism from the contenders, that's the whole point of the contest isn't it?)... but if it is allowed to upload "new" versions of old pictures, (the contest rules don't say anything about that specific matter), then I would like to use my older files as well, and re-upload them with modifications, so it is fair for everyone. Since you removed some of my pictures from the contest, I figured I could turn to you: maybe you know better the rules and can help me clarify this misunderstood. Thank you and have a good afternoon. --Paolo Costa (talk) 22:07, 15 May 2014 (UTC)

Paolo Costa, it seems you're wrong in this example. File:Backlit Margarita Island Sunset in Las Guevaras, Venezuela.jpg was uploaded on 12 April 2014 (taken at 19 December 2013) and File:Backlit Margarita Island Sunset in Las Guevaras, Venezuela CaptureNX2.jpg on 14 April 2014 per the suggestion of DXR at Commons:Featured picture candidates/File:Backlit Margarita Island Sunset in Las Guevaras, Venezuela.jpg. Am I right? Jee 03:03, 16 May 2014 (UTC)
Thanks Jee, for the quick response and clarifyin. I made an obvious mistake, I was away for a long while, so I lost practice. Since the dates were different on those files in the description (now they've been fixed), I got all mixed up. Thanks and best regards. --Paolo Costa (talk) 03:33, 16 May 2014 (UTC)
By the way, all the photos I uploaded are photographs taken during the time of the competition too. In some cases, I had the wrong date on the camera and forgot to change it later. This can be verified in the RAW file, the shooter counter. However, this has nothing to do with the competition because it is not as punishable. I believe that it is a matter of carefully read the contest rules without attempting to do tricks in bad faith as the modification of previously uploaded versions. I hope to see new pictures of Paolo and that this will encourage healthy competition, a hug --Wilfredo R. Rodríguez H. (talk) 04:49, 16 May 2014 (UTC)

Hola a todos. Voy a responder en español porque este es un concurso ideado para una audiencia de habla hispana y de hecho, para personas residentes en Venezuela. Debo aclarar que el concurso no ha culminado. Cierra el último de mayo 2014. Hasta ese momento todos tienen oportunidad de subir sus fotos y ponerlas bajo la categoría Wikiviajes por Venezuela 2014 para entrar a concurso. Entre tanto, la comunidad de Commons es autónoma en su proyecto. Cualquier borrado, cambio de categoría o acción similar, compete en principio a la comunidad. Pedimos que no se hagan borrados salvo que sean obvios. Como un copyvio archivos repetidos. Esto no tiene nada que ver con las decisiones del concurso. Es la acción de la comunidad de commons. Aún cuando un usuario pudiera subir imágenes ya existente antiguamente para concursar, se encontrará con doble problema innecesario. Por un lado, tendrá que lidiar con la comunidad que seguramente le pondrá el ojo a esos archivos. Segundo, el equipo de Wikimedia Venezuela hace seguimiento de los archivos y pudiera retirar fotografías de la categoría a su único criterio, que es el que establecen las bases, las cuales al final declaran que: "Todo lo no establecido en estas bases queda a criterio único de Wikimedia Venezuela y no existen condiciones u obligaciones, verbales o escritas, expresas o tácitas distintas a esta." Luego en junio, cuando comience el proceso de evaluación, estas personas que llegasen a subir imágenes con una clara intención de atentar contra la integridad e intención del concurso, podrían aumentar sus probabilidades de que sus imágenes sean rápidamente descalificadas. Miles de imágenes serán descalificadas porque al final, solo 3 resultarán ganadoras. Difícilmente sea alguna que contraríe las bases del concurso, una que contraríe a las normas de la comunidad y por supuesto, alguna que el jurado no considere que merezca el mérito ganador. Lo bueno de esto es generar contenido libre, animar a los venezolanos y residentes en el país a generar este tipo de contenidos, tener mayor material libre de Venezuela para Wikiviajes y otros proyectos, y enraizar más nuestra cultura libre. Nadie sabe como terminará esto. Tal vez el ganador sea quien haya subido una sola foto, o quizás el que subió 300. El secreto está en la calidad de la imagen, el apego a las bases y a las normas de la comunidad. Y claro, subir más imágenes aumentará la posibilidad de que alguna suya sea la elegida, pero traten que sean fotos que de verdad pudieran tener chance y no solo por rellenar, porque así no valdrá de mucho. Si subes 100 muy malas o conflictivas, seguro terminarán sin oportunidad. Si subes 100 en las que crees tener potencial, seguro muchas de ellas te sean elegidas y con mucho chance de ganar. Si tienen mayores inquietudes, pueden escribir a info@wikimedia.org.ve Saludos --Fhaidel (talk) 11:42, 16 May 2014 (UTC)

Re-edition of the Photowikimeetup in Wikimania 2014[edit]

Hello Beria! in the case that you are also visiting this year's Wikimania in London, you may be interested in attending the new edition of the photowikimeetup that took place in Hong Kong last year, and where you listed up. As the preparation is not yet settled, you are more than welcomed to take part in the discussion here. All the best, Poco2 17:42, 15 June 2014 (UTC)
