User:FlickreviewR/bad-authors[edit]

According to File:Gaza conflict2.jpg (Flickr link on this page was only: source=http://flickr.com/photos/farshadebrahimi/3159834784/in/photostream/) whos uploader Amir Farshad Ebrahimi is on the list of bad authors with his ID 97506548@N00: Is the bad-authors list dissabled or does it not work for alphabetic IDs like in this case? Thanks, --Martin H. (talk) 20:58, 8 January 2009 (UTC)



Flickr pictures' time zone[edit]

I think it would be a nice improvement if your Flickr upload tool could retrieve the time zone together with the date and hour of each picture.

It seems that each Flickr user can choose his own time zone for his flickr account, and that this time zone is used by Flickr to interpret the EXIF date and time and calculate the Flickr "taken on" photo date and time.

CommonsDelinker[edit]

Hello. Here you have an interesting mix of filename using space and underscore (File:Ne_pas_signer-fond_jaune.png). Then maybe that's why the robot can't replace files. Do you think you/we can fix that or should i update pages myself?

If you use Python script, i can provide you a regex patch, but i dont know where is the code.

Thanks for your help. ~ bayo or talk 10:44, 22 November 2009 (UTC)

Lost of Exif data[edit]

hello,

When an image needs a rotation, apparently made by the bot, the Exif data are lost. For exemple, see the original version and the Commons version. Okki (talk) 10:31, 2 March 2010 (UTC)


Flickrreview bot telling uploaders if there is a problem[edit]

Hi Bryan! Perhaps I have asked about this before but now that you made the bot run every hour I thought that would be a good idea it the bot informed uploader if the license is unfree (npd-template) or if source is not found (nsd-template). However, if the size does not match it is probably because it is a crop and it is better to let a reviewer look at the image before uploader is "spammed". Would it be hard for you to implement a feature like that? --MGA73 (talk) 11:07, 29 July 2010 (UTC)


User:CommonsDelinkerHelper feedback[edit]

Hello, the bot had deleted an accurate file 24h after, which I'd uploaded to replace the renamed one. JackPotte (talk) 20:25, 26 August 2010 (UTC)

universally replaced - smth. is wrong[edit]

i reverted this as the File:Pl-Łobez.ogg does not exist. Could you check the WP as well. i reverted on de but dont know where else it was used ...Sicherlich Post 03:07, 27 August 2010 (UTC)

same with File:Pl-opoczno.ogg ...Sicherlich Post 03:08, 27 August 2010 (UTC)
it seems all the edits you did with "universally replaced..." where wrong. Could you please check and repair it!? dont forget about the Wikipedias! Thx. ...Sicherlich Post 03:11, 27 August 2010 (UTC)


New check[edit]

Please check the new information File:Staromestsky orloj detail 1.jpg and File:Prazsky orloj celkovy pohled.jpg. Conversion tool incorrectly added a "#" instead of dot "." --Hapesoft (talk) 13:33, 15 October 2010 (UTC)


Markup bug in DRBot[edit]

Hi Bryan, Check this edit for an example. I suggest putting the entire deletion-reason in <nowiki>-tags, rather then just escaping the {{ and }}-characters.

ie. instead of this (currently):

'Deleted by Túrelio: content was: '{{delete|reason=This was meant to be a creator-template page, but I did something wrong and now it is just a regular page.|subpage=Frans_Pourbus_the_Younger|year=2010|month=October|day=28}} {{Creator | Name = :Category:Fr...
'''Deleted''' by [[User:Túrelio|Túrelio]]: ''content was: '{{delete|reason=This was meant to be a creator-template page, but I did something wrong and now it is just a regular page.|subpage=Frans_Pourbus_the_Younger|year=2010|month=October|day=28}} {{Creator  | Name              = :Category:Fr...'''

This:

Deleted by Túrelio: content was: '{{delete|reason=This was meant to be a creator-template page, but I did something wrong and now it is just a regular page.|subpage=Frans_Pourbus_the_Younger|year=2010|month=October|day=28}} {{Creator | Name = :Category:Fr...'

CommonsDelinker does not work[edit]

Hi Bryan,
Yesterday I gave CommonsDelinker a couple of images to replace (to get rid of the "Δ" in my ol uploads). Some of them did work, some of them not. According to CommonsDelinker's log (http://toolserver.org/~delinker/index.php?replacer=1) and my image-collecting-page CommonsDelinker changed all files till Δ0016. However, not all uses are changed: Snow cannon nozzles-big Δ0011.JPG is still in use and it's new place Snow cannon nozzles-big PNr°0011.jpg as well.
Any ideas?
thx for help --D-Kuru (talk) 18:22, 15 December 2010 (UTC)

Seems that CommonsDelinker somewho works again. Is it common that CommonsDelinker needs some time to preocess some more images or takes some time off to reset itself after it got spammed with replacements? I'm just asking because I'm used to CommonsDelinker removing the entry within like 5 minutes after you set the command.
--D-Kuru (talk) 03:12, 20 December 2010 (UTC)

User:FlickreviewR/Images never editted by their reviewer[edit]

Please keep the service alive, it was already very usefull to find some bad copyvio cases. I asked Zil to please not have his bot images reviewed in his name but to let FlickrreviewR have the job done, that will keep the pages shorter in future. Thanks for all your work, --Martin H.

Flickr Upload is down[edit]

Hi I'm not sure if this is the right place to let you know, but your Flickr Upload on the Toolserver is throwing an internal error. Hope it gets fixed by itself, or by you. Thanks! Mandiberg (talk) 23:42, 7 February 2011 (UTC)

Thanks, Mandiberg, for pointing it out... because I came here for the same reason: I've been getting "internal error" messages since Feb 7 or 6 and was starting to wonder if it's just me/my computer. Apparently it's not, so I hope someone can take care of it... --Ibn Battuta 15:11, 8 February 2011 (UTC)

Bryan, is your Flickr upload tool alright? If not, can it be fixed? Thanks, Motacilla (talk) 12:23, 19 June 2011 (UTC)

Flickr Upload bot: Requested changes[edit]

A couple suggestions if someone still reads this discussion page:

  1. I think it's very problematic that the bot is copying the flickr description into Commons without indicating so. While we can discuss if it's a copyright violation for short descriptions, it clearly is for longer ones. Maybe (?) even worse: I've seen flickr pictures, which have used copyright violations in their descriptions (sometimes from Wikipedia, sometimes from other sources)--if the bot simply copies them into Commons, we're importing these legal problems as well! Simple solution: Add quotation marks around the quote and the comment "original flickr description." That way everyone realizes it's not a Commons text... (and if a Commons user later wants to change it, he can still do so, but notices he's fiddling with someone else's (quoted!) text.)
  2. I'm using Adblock Plus. Strangely, the bot works as long as I disable Commons scripts--when I enable them, however, I'm getting an error message (can't copy it right now because the bot is down: see above). As I prefer to enable Commons scripts (for the cat-a-lot feature), this is quite annoying. Any way to take care of this?
  3. Would it be hard to improve the tool to add categorizations? I'm thinking of something along the lines of the cat-a-lot tool, which automatically displays sub- and super-categories (so if I wanted to categorize something in "Category:Sports," the tool would automatically display several or preferably all subcategories, which would make me realize that I should probably not leave my image in that general category... BTW, in the case of the bot, a large or even exhaustive list of the subcategories is of course more important than super-categories...).
  4. Once more about the descriptions: Any simple way to include a "language" feature, so the bot could add the typical template of "{{en|..." or whichever it is? Maybe by simply adding a checkbox asking if it's an "English description"... and alternatively, in one of the other most common Commons languages (Spanish, French, Dutch, German???)? (The last option could be "other," in which case the bot again leaves the description without a template.)

Thanks!!! (First and foremost for the bot... and even more so if you should consider any of the suggestions above.) --Ibn Battuta 15:11, 8 February 2011 (UTC)

Okay, here we go with the error message, which I get from the bot when I try to upload images from flickr with JavaScript enabled (!) for Commons. Apparently, the bot is trying to overwrite the Main Page (!). (The following is copy-pasted; I'm leaving out the links.) URL is this, website:
"View source

If you could allow for Commons users to use both Javascript and your bot, that'd be very awesome. Thanks, Ibn Battuta (talk) 13:59, 10 February 2011 (UTC)

File:Beijing Film Academy.jpg[edit]

Hi, Bryan! I ask your help about the reviewing of this photo. I don't understand what FlickreviewR noted. Okay, when uploading I accidentally wrote cc-by-2.0 licenc, and your bot changed it to cc-by-sa-2.0, as it is seen on FlickR, too, but I don't understand this sentence: it is unknown whether that license ever was valid. Why is unkonwn? We can see on FlickR the licence. Thanks for you help in advance. - RepliCarter (talk) 14:18, 21 March 2011 (UTC)

Experienced editor here, with a similar problem. On two separate days, I've worked through the steps, get to the end, and the bot returns this message: "The image page on Commons was never editted by the user who issued the upload."

Particular file will not upload[edit]

The error message starts out: Permission error From Wikimedia Commons, the free media repository Jump to: navigation, search

You do not have permission to edit this page, for the following reason:

The page title or edit you have tried to create cannot be created or edited by you at this time. It matches an entry on the local or global blacklists, used to prevent vandalism.

DR bot logic fault[edit]

DRbot does not handle redirects properly. Eg [3] file was kept after deletion request then moved, bot insists on putting {{kept}} on redirection page rather than being satisfied with it on destination page.

Another example, File:414thcts-patch.jpg was deleted as duplicate/redundant but the bot insists[4] on adding {{kept}} to talk page even though the file wasn't kept, just redirected.

Fix required, tell bot to only edit destination of redirects. --Tony Wills (talk) 23:28, 25 May 2011 (UTC)

COM:QFI check[edit]

Can you take a quick look to confirm that the Flickr upload bot is checking COM:QFI when it's processing an upload? I just closed out Commons:Deletion requests/File:Rosie Huntington-Whiteley.jpg where the file was uploaded from http://flickr.com/photos/30375176@N08/4495791238. That URL belongs to a Flickr account named hugo971, who is present on the QFI list. I'm just curious as to how it got uploaded by the bot... Tabercil (talk) 20:39, 1 July 2011 (UTC)

flickr bot exception[edit]

Hello Bryan, I am one of the user who uses your flickr upload bot. Can you allow me atleast 50 images in hour or per day. I normally upload images to flickr and whenever I get time, I upload to commons.--Rameshng (talk) 06:05, 17 July 2011 (UTC)

Hello Bryan, I often use your Flickr upload bot and most of the time I get an "oplad limit reached" error. Can you please allow me to upload more than the usual amount of photos? When using your tool I normally want to upload a big bunch of flickr images. -- Greetz Sir Gawain (talk) 07:48, 28 July 2011 (UTC)

Bug: CommonsDelinker removing images still available locally[edit]

Hi Bryan, I mentioned this bug to you before and it seems to still be there. It's causing a lot of problems for my bot. See this edit. At the time at which this edit was made, the file "File:Logo Uni St. Gallen.png" had already been re-uploaded to En at en:File:Logo Uni St. Gallen - from Commons.png, and a valid image redirect existed at en:File:Logo Uni St. Gallen.png. As such the image it removed was not a redlink. CommonsDelinker seems to ignore local image redirects. Let me know if I can do anything to help get this fixed. Thanks. Dcoetzee (talk) 07:22, 27 July 2011 (UTC)

Flickr images are not uploaded[edit]

Hello Bryan, could you please fix my July upload from flickr? I used toolserver for the flickrbot, but images are still nowhere. I didn't paste file extension, is this the problem? --Bonnifac (talk) 22:57, 29 July 2011 (UTC)

Same thing here, the bot gives an error message: "Image is not in database." after clicking the upload link. Flying Saucer (talk) 10:59, 30 July 2011 (UTC)
In my case, no error, but no image. See http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Osoyoos_fruit_trees.jpg . Note that I manually uploaded the image up to the same filename after ten minutes (ignoring the "same file name" warning), so the upload credit says "Lexein" not UploadBot or Bryan.
A great feature would be more status information while the bot is doing its work
  • 1: [time] Image now downloaded from Flickr. Status: OK, in buffer. Size: 232KB
  • 2: [time] Image now uploading to Commons. Expected upload time for 232KB image: 2 seconds. (The last image upload (800KB) timed out after 5 minutes, and was probably not uploaded. The image before that (40KB) took 1 second to successfully upload.
  • 3: [time] Image upload to Commons complete. Commons status: [the real status]

Exemption?[edit]

Hi, I previously sent an email but maybe there is a page watcher that can provide an exemption from the 24 images/hour limit? I have a helpful script that I created that sorts out naming and adds extra Flickr info with the intention of a moderate sized batch upload (c. 600 images) from the Boston Public Library. If I can have an exemption then the upload will be pretty straightforward. Examples at:

De-adminship warning[edit]

Dear Bryan. I am writing to you to inform you that you are in danger of losing your adminship on Commons because of inactivity.

If you want to keep your adminship, you need both to sign at Commons:Administrators/Inactivity section/Aug-Sep 2011 within 30 days of today's date, and also to make at least five further admin actions in the following six months. Anyone who does not do so will automatically lose administrator rights.

You can read the de-admin policy at Commons:Administrators/De-adminship.

flickr washers[edit]

Hi Bryan, user:Flickr upload bot did review a flickrwashed file. The user was known to be uploading files with wrong licenes. Doesn't your bot use this list? Cheers --Saibo (Δ) 02:49, 6 September 2011 (UTC)

It should use User:FlickreviewR/bad-authors as the list of known flickrwashers. Commons:Questionable Flickr images/Users is for us humans. But the question still stands. BTW, Flinfo does use that list. However, Saibo, if you want a reasonably quick answer, e-mail Bryan. He doesn't check this page regularly. Lupo 05:57, 6 September 2011 (UTC)
No quick answer needed - just a bug/feature request which exists since ever. ;) Do we have a bot which regularly uses this list to perform simple full text searches for the flickr user names / codes and report any hits? Cheers --Saibo (Δ) 00:17, 8 September 2011 (UTC)

Flickr upload bot broken?[edit]

Hi. The flickr upload bot seems to be broken - I can't work out how/where to report this. Considering how useful this is we need a better way of handling things than this!

I get permission error: "You do not have permission to edit this page, for the following reason: The page title or edit you have tried to create cannot be created or edited by you at this time. It matches an entry on the local or global blacklists, used to prevent vandalism. ". It doesn't seem to be affected by the actual title. Secretlondon (talk) 23:31, 23 November 2011 (UTC)

US Gov is not free?[edit]

When I try to use http://toolserver.org/~bryan/flickr/upload to upload an image like http://www.flickr.com/photos/ciagov/5416792464/ that is licensed as United States Government Work the page complains about "The image on Flickr is not licensed under a sufficiently free license.". That don't sound right. Perhaps it's an omission from the script. // Liftarn (talk) 15:23, 16 December 2011 (UTC)

AFAIR this license tag is relatively new at Flickr and I therefore assume the Bot does not know how to handle it. --Denniss (talk) 17:35, 16 December 2011 (UTC)

Upload limit increase request[edit]

Hi. Your Flickr to Commons tool is very useful and nifty! It says I can request an upload limit exemption from you, so I am hereby doing so.

Question regarding BryanBot on en:WP[edit]

Hello, I'm an admin over on en:WP, and had been using BryanBot to maintain a pair of discussion tracking threads that I use at en:User:Barek/index1 and en:User:Barek/index2. I noticed today that neither had been updated since yesterday; although the bot still appears to be updating other pages on en:WP.

I just wanted to check if the pages were intentionally removed from the list of pages maintained by the bot? Has a setting changed, or did I set something incorrectly? If you've been forced to limit the usage of the bot for some reason, just let me know. I'm just curious. Thanks! --- Barek (talkcontribs) - 17:21, 6 February 2012 (UTC)

Note, I struck through one of the pages - it's mainly the first one that I rely on to keep me current on EL issues, which is where I spend more of my time. --- Barek (talkcontribs) - 17:32, 6 February 2012 (UTC)
The updates are being posted again; thank you if that was a settings change you had made. And, while I'm at it, thank you for making the bot available for monitoring discussion threads. --- Barek (talkcontribs) - 05:40, 7 February 2012 (UTC)

Use HTTPS for Flickr Upload[edit]

Hi Bryan, could you update the script for Flickr Upload to use the HTTPS protocol instead of HTTP, or give the user the option of using the former? Thanks. Mindmatrix 22:37, 11 February 2012 (UTC)

PLease check File:Miss Kentucky 2010.jpg and explain me why the bot failed to uplaod it (please add a routine that the bot checks also the revision if the user really never requested that upload!)

User:BryanBot[edit]

A more effective way to recognize and change {{tl}} to {{tlf}} should be inputed so that the actual templates won't be transcluded on User:Herbythyme/Talk stuff, as one template currently is. The bot should also recognize time from {{unsigned}}, so that "Last comment unknown" doesn't appear, as it currently does in the last two entries of User:Herbythyme/Talk stuff. -- SLV100 (talk) 04:48, 17 May 2012 (UTC)

The upload comments are wrong[edit]

Hi, The URLs in the upload comments left by the flickr upload bot are systematically wrong. For every file uploaded by the bot, the URL in the upload comment does not match the URL of the source field. To take one example at random from the most recent uploads today: in File:Tameside Court, Hattersley.jpg, the URL of the source, which is correctly given in the source field, is http://flickr.com/photos/90384027@N00/1794734667, but the URL in the upload comment is wrongly indicated as http://flickr.com/photo/90384027@N00/1794734667. The difference is the missing "s" in "photos". Those broken URLs all direct to a flickr error page, which in turn, for some unknown reason, redirect always to the account of the same flick user, which has nothing at all to do with any of those uploaded files. The poor owner of this flickr account may be happy to receive hundreds of unexplained visits to his account, but he may wonder where they come from and why it attracts interest. The bot inserting a wrong URL in the upload comment may not sound like much of a problem in most cases, but it can make things more difficult when a problem occurs with the the rest of the upload information, for example in a case like this upload, where the correct URL did not appear anywhere. That looks like something that could be easily fixed in the flickr upload bot. Thanks. -- Asclepias (talk) 18:27, 25 May 2012 (UTC)

Problem with FlickreviewR bot[edit]

Hi Bryan,

I have being in trouble with FlickreviewR's actions concerning Flickr images. Almost all Flickr images I have uploaded so far and are "reviewed" by this bot, are replaced with the highest resolution available in Flickr, which is obviously NOT MY CHOICE. This action generates two problems: first and greatest instead of a 280 Kb of traffic there will be a 3.9 Mb one for instance, and second: the image disappears from "My uploads" list.

Please, stop doing that, or the average traffic of articles using those images will be increased exponentially. At this moment I'm trying to find all my Flickr uploaded images and revert this action.

Regards. --Marcric (talk) 12:21, 28 October 2012 (UTC)

Uploading the highest res image is done on purpose as the Wiki image scalers work fine. Don't revert the images to a lowres version, you may find many of these changes reverted. --Denniss (talk) 19:04, 28 October 2012 (UTC)

Copyright violation remplaced derivatives of File:Arms of the duchy of Milano.svg by User Heralder:Heralder[edit]

Hello!

I uploaded images reusing elements nominated by its own author and proved as copyright violations. There was a problem with a file File:Arms of the duchy of Milano.svg and its derivatives. I've replaced the copyright violation image for a derivative work of this file, File:Coat of arms of the House of Visconti (1277).svg without poblems as you can see.. Sorry for no change before these elements. I'm really busy uploading other files. Thank you --Heralder (talk) 22:05, 28 November 2012 (UTC)

Other elements of these files new bersion created by the author, or derivatives from: File:Royal Arms of England (1554-1558).svg and File:Coat of Arms of the Commonwealth of England.svg


Is this license ok?[edit]

Hi there!. I used this this Commons file to make a zoom in order to get this other file. Is the first file ok about its license creative commons 2.0?, Is posible to have the second file as a derivative work? I do not know to much about license or how to fill the registration form. Did I make a mistake? [9] Thanks Jaontiveros (talk) 20:15, 28 December 2012 (UTC)

A favour please[edit]

Can you ask me a doubt no related with your activity? I could't get any information. Is it possible ask a librarian or administrator for change the title of one file: There is an old image of the former Spanish royal arms of Spain File:Coat_of_Arms_of_the_Prince_of_Asturias-Salsas1640.jpg from a book about the Spanish heir and the uploader use a wrong identification as you can see is it possible change it to Spanish_Royal_Coat_of_Arms-Salsas1640.jpg Do you know who is the person/page I asking for? It would create confusion about the emblems of Spain.

It isn't an opinion there are sources:

"Normalising"[edit]

Here DRBot (talk · contribs) "normalised" a daily log page by removing a misplaced deletion request. I'm not sure if this is a good idea. In this case, the file is correctly tagged with {{duplicate}}, so the removal does no harm, but it could be worse in other situations. --Stefan4 (talk) 23:47, 4 March 2013 (UTC)

To make it more obvious how to contact you[edit]

I'd like to suggest you update the {{Bot}} heading at User:FlickreviewR, adding a text parameter that says something similar to the following:

text= <br/>As noted on [[User talk:Bryan|Bryan's talk page]] in July 2009, in case you need [to reach the FlickreviewR bot operator] {{green|Bryan should be '''contacted by email'''}} via [[Special:Emailuser/Bryan]].<br/><br/>

Hi, Bryan. I'm enjoying your cool Flickr upload tool on toolserver for several years.

However on today, while I'm uploading series of photographs of "Jodan Rudes at Microsoft Build 2012", etc, I seem to reach the limit of upload. The message is like this:

You have reached your upload limit. You can request an exemption to Bryan.

Flickr upload bot: limit exemption, batch uploading?[edit]

Hey Bryan,
I'm ESM, I'm the wikipedian in residence of Museu d'Art Jaume Morera in Lleida (Catalonia, Spain). During my residency we have been working on a bequest of around 1000 pictures, which were digitised and uploaded to Flickr so as to get them crowdsourced. The pictures are in the public domain (its author, Baldomer Gili i Roig, was born in 1873 and died in 1926) and we'd like to upload them to Commons so as to give them a broader usage. Is there any way we could use your Flickr upload bot to make a batch uploading (by albums, for example) to make things easier? Thanks! --ESM (talk) 09:41, 4 August 2013 (UTC)

False/bad information on this page and added by DRBot[edit]

CommonsDelinker and redirects[edit]

Hi Bryan, Typokorrektör told me that the CommonsDelinker replaces a redirection construct of the form #REDIRECT [[File:Deleted File.jpg]] by #REDIRECT in case of a deletion. See, for example, File:Sanfranzisco19874.jpg. (In these cases I forgot to check for redirects when I deleted an image. And I will delete these redirects now.) Perhaps it would be better to generate some kind of notification in these cases, e.g. by creating a DR, filling a page or a log with such cases, or by notifying the deleting admin.

HTTPS and Flickr upload bot[edit]

Hello Bryan, sorry for my bad English. I have just noticed that since this evening, it is impossible to upload a picture with your bot because users are now connected with HTTPS. The solution I have found is to untick the box "Always use a secure connection when logged in" in the preferences. I hope you can update your bot or write a warning message about HTTPS for the other users. Thank you, Nemesis III (discuter) 21:51, 28 August 2013 (UTC)

FlickreviewR[edit]

Hello Bryan, it seems that the FlickreviewR bot is auto-flagging some Flickr accounts and images as Flickrwashed material, such as when I uploaded this one. However, I uploaded those images with permission from the author herself under her terms by using the Creative Commons Attribution-Share Alike 2.0 license to credit her. I also ran those images in Google Search by Image and TinEye to make sure they're the original, in which the search engines confirmed that they aren't laundered. All of those images also have their EXIF data to prove that they're legitimate. So did the bot flagged it? Something must be done for this. Chihciboy (talk) 06:30, 6 October 2013 (UTC)

Deletion requests/2013/12/04[edit]

Hi Bryan! This message is regarding this edition your bot did. I don't get what "Normalizing" means here or where did the requests went. In fact I proposed for deletion 5 images in a row; in the first one I used the {{delete}} template and then copy-pasted the text that Commons requested on here. But then I could not do the same with any of the other 4 files, for Commons kept "saying" that I should use the {{delete2}} template, and after doing so the message was "On the log, add :{{File:Panoramica-del-Castell de Santa Fiorentina.jpg}}". And that's what I did. Well, I see I don't understand very well the procedure or how to do this, so I'd be really grateful if somebody could explain it all a bit so I could act properly in future ocasions. So this extensive text is to ask for instructions (what do I have to do now with those "removed" requests?) and some explanations about the deletion requests rules. Thanks in advance, and have a good day. --Judesba (talk) 07:40, 4 December 2013 (UTC)

Your bot[edit]

is cr*p..why can't someone come up with a decent bot that uploads via the user "uploading" it instead of it trying to do it on its own and then forgetting to actually UPLOAD the picture..everytime i use your bot, i'm disappointed but i'm forced to as there is no alternative but Magnus's bot which is also currently facing "technical difficulties" and the worst part about these bot makers are that they are rarely around to fix them..I reiterate something i said a few years back, this wiki NEEDS Special:ImportFreeImages...can't trust the bots..--Stemoc (talk) 07:41, 17 January 2014 (UTC)

Please choose your words more carefully. There are atually multiple reasons to have the Flickruploadbot fail, Toolserver connection, upload ordered but filepage not edited by ordering user, file is a duplicate or a duplicate had already been deleted, html tags in exif data and some others. --Denniss (talk) 12:44, 17 January 2014 (UTC)
actually, it mainly fails with my requests. I don't do anything different but i have been forced to go to IRC on many occasions to ask admins to delete pages which the bot "forgot" to upload the images to..I feel there should be a better method, time to "write off" the bots and make it more "user-pro". Image reviewers can apparently direct upload to wiki, maybe it should be opened for all...time to upgrade this wiki atleast, it is lacking many features/extension that could make this wiki very useful--Stemoc (talk) 13:12, 17 January 2014 (UTC)
If you have a problem with the bot not uploading photos, there is no need to delete the page, it is possible to make the bot "rewrite" the page. I have done that, for example, here, but I do not remember exactly how, it was months ago (try to upload the file, with the bot, with the name of the file that has been "forgotten" by the bot). Sorry for my probably bad English. Nemesis III (discuter) 16:56, 17 January 2014 (UTC).
