Flickr question

I understand your bot will pass a flickr image if the license is a valid commons one. But since Flickr doesn't have PD or GFDL, I was advised to just put a statement on the flickr page about the PD/GFDL license. Is this okay? Also, is there a template I can use to link the commons image page to the flickr version? So far I am just putting in a link. See the three images I just uploaded for samples of what I'm talking about. My user name is the same on Flickr.

Image tools

We need a method to opt out of this script, mainly for my own sanity. Please see the request here. I've also asked Lupo to take a look. Thanks for anything you can do to help :) – Mike.lifeguard | @en.wb 22:16, 3 April 2008 (UTC)

Featured picture templates

Hi. I saw that you have used BryanBot before to move nominations (or create redirects) from Commons:Featured picture candidates/Image:... to Commons:Featured pictures candidates/Image:... so that the automated link works in the featured picture template. I was just wondering if you could run the bot again to kill of the last ones which are still linking incorrectly from the template. Thanks /Lokal_Profil 16:17, 5 April 2008 (UTC)

Disambiguationpages

Hello BryanBot, is het possible to update the nl-wiki-page nl:Wikipedia:Links naar doorverwijspagina's/data with 40 or more disambiguationpages? (At the moment it is 50 or more.) Thanks! (You can find me on nl:Gebruiker:Romaine) NL-Romaine 07:57, 11 April 2008 (UTC)

Zie twee topics omhoog. -- Bryan (talk to me) 13:08, 11 April 2008 (UTC)

PD-Vlaams-gemeentewapen

From Template talk:PD-Vlaams-gemeentewapen I'm getting the impression that you might have some insight into the legal status of Belgian coat of arms. Since there is currently a (rather heated) discussion about these I would appreciate any input. /Lokal_Profil 17:56, 31 March 2008 (UTC)

Well, I can read the law :) What discussion are you talking about? -- Bryan (talk to me) 19:58, 31 March 2008 (UTC)
The discussion started about these three images (1, 2, 3) but then ended up in Commons:Administrators' noticeboard/User problems#User:LimoWreck and User:Sonuwe with a report on me underneath. The main thing is that PD-Vlaams-gemeentewapen makes it sound as though Belgian CoA's are not PD by default which was what I was working from. If they are all PD then thats great and the template should be updated. However so far I haven't seen any references to any laws just a blogg. /Lokal_Profil 21:41, 31 March 2008 (UTC)
I can't help with the eternal blason versus coat of arms discussion, because I know too few about it. But I'll look up some references for the template -- Bryan (talk to me) 08:10, 1 April 2008 (UTC)
Thanks that would be appreciated. /Lokal_Profil 23:07, 2 April 2008 (UTC)
I looked into this, but could not really find anything useful. I could not determine whether a law or regulation exists that declares COAs into the public domain. It should however be noted that the wording of the Dutch version is slightly different worded. The word that is translated as public in English is openbaar in Dutch. This meaning is more similar to public as in public body and much more general than the public of public domain. -- Bryan (talk to me) 20:03, 12 April 2008 (UTC)
Is that template based on the same sources as our Template:PD-Vlaams-gemeentewapen? As a side question are the different parts of Belgium likely to have different views on the status of CoA (have no clue about how much the independent the flemish/waloon parts are). /Lokal_Profil 20:16, 12 April 2008 (UTC)
Yes it is based on the same sources; our template is a translation of it. According to the wording of the template the different parts of Belgium can be considered entirely separate, which I think is highly likely. I have no sources to back this up though. -- Bryan (talk to me) 20:19, 12 April 2008 (UTC)
Ok, looks as though we're stuck with an even more uncertain situation then we started with =(. /Lokal_Profil 20:25, 12 April 2008 (UTC)

Meer CommonsDelinker-fouten: uitgeschakeld

Hoi Bryan. Totdat je in de gelegenheid bent om een aantal correcties te maken in de code van CommonsDelinker heb ik de bot preventief uitgeschakeld. Ik hoop dat je snel in de gelegenheid bent om dit te doen. Zie mijn overlegpagina voor een groot aantal rapporten. Dank en groet, Siebrand 09:39, 14 April 2008 (UTC)

That was quick!

I was just looking at them when I saw you'd blocked them. Will you post to the list? Cheers --Herby talk thyme 10:26, 17 April 2008 (UTC)

Philip Greenspun illustration project

Hi, what is the reason to create the article Philip Greenspun illustration project without any picture? Moreover, this article is not categorized and appear then in the list of Uncategorized Pages. Thanks for your attention. Guérin nicolas(messages) 18:30, 17 April 2008 (UTC)

Flickr uploader - still no 'no known restrictions'?

Hey,

Your Flickr uploader complained about this (from one of Flickr's "The Commons" partners) not being under a sufficiently free license. Bug in Flickr API or your code? :) --pfctdayelise (说什么?) 14:00, 12 April 2008 (UTC)

Um, I'll get back to you on that one... pfctdayelise (说什么?) 14:15, 13 April 2008 (UTC)

mwclient

Hi Bryan,

Your mwclient software has come to my notice, and I'm impressed with it. I'm Philip Hunt (aka Cabalamat on en-wikipedia) and I'm developing an inclusionist fork of Wikipedia. I'd like to collaborate with you on the mwclient software, and I may be able to offer you some paid work. Could you let me know your email address so we could discuass this in more detail? (I'm cabalamat at googlemail dot com).

Flickr upload bot bug

Bryan, I love Flickr upload bot...I just wanted to report a minor problem. If you process an image for upload and select categories for the image, then it turns out that the filename already exists on Commons, the selected categories are lost when the page reloads. Hopefully it can be fixed. Thanks for your great work! Kelly 04:45, 20 April 2008 (UTC)

german disambiguation pages

Hey Bryan. With your last update the number of disambigs [2] the number of total disambiguation pages jumped from 78.000 to 81.000 and the number of links from 325.000 to 335.000. Do you now count in another way? --Aktionsheld 14:17, 21 April 2008 (UTC)

w:nl:Wikipedia:Links naar doorverwijspagina's

Hoi Bryan, zou je de limiet voor het vermelden van doorverwijspagina's op w:nl:Wikipedia:Links naar doorverwijspagina's willen verlagen naar 40? De lijst is de laatste paar weken namelijk vrij kort en het zou mooi zijn als er minimaal bijv. 50 pagina's op staan. Is het mogelijk om enkel pagina's op te nemen met meer dan 50 inkomende links als dat er meer dan 50 zijn en anders de lijst op te vullen tot 50 doorverwijspagina's? Dat lijkt me namelijk erg handig, maar ik neem aan dat je dat op dit moment niet ingebouwd hebt. Wie weet iets voor als je een keer tijd hebt. De lijst is in ieder geval erg handig. Bedankt! Groet, Erwin(85) 17:56, 9 April 2008 (UTC)

Dat is ja ook toevallig, ik wou net met hetzelfde verzoek komen - die limiet verlagen nu het aantal dp's met zeer veel links zeer klein is geworden. Dat idee van sowieso de eerste 50 meenemen, klinkt inderdaad wel geschikt, maar zolang het er niet inzit zou je met de hand het aantal kunnen verlagen en kijken wat momenteel geschikt is. - Andre Engels 07:37, 10 April 2008 (UTC)

Hij staat nu op 40. Ik zal later wel even kijken of ik een minimum aantal pagina's kan doen. -- Bryan (talk to me) 13:07, 11 April 2008 (UTC)

Als een minimum zou kunnen zou ik persoonlijk in plaats van slechts 50 liever 100 of 150 stuks prefereren. (Misschien zelfs 200.) De reden hiervoor is dat we in 1 dag al tweederde van een lijst van 105 stuks hebben afgewerkt. Daarnaast is het bij het aantal links naar deze pagina's lager en dus eerder opgelost. NL-Romaine 02:47, 16 April 2008 (UTC)
Staat nu op 30 zo te zien. Een minimum aantal op de lijst lijkt wenselijk inderdaad. NL-Romaine 11:59, 26 April 2008 (UTC)

Flickr web tools

I love your upload tool. Is there anyway to let others know a image has already been uploaded? I know it automatically detects it sometimes, but I found a couple images we have that when I tried to upload it didn't warn me. For example, we have http://flickr.com/photos/pearbiter/566128230/ right here. I'm not sure what it checks for but maybe there's a way to update it manually? Rocket000 13:55, 21 April 2008 (UTC)

Ah, ok. Rocket000 13:48, 25 April 2008 (UTC)
