My backlog of volunteer tasks can be found at User:Fæ/backlog. This runs as an agile backlog. Low priority tasks may take months to complete.

For questions or requests relating to UK Chapter activities, or if you are connected to the UK Chapter, please email me rather than writing on-wiki or on this page.

Flickr users: In addition to my projects of content creation for Commons, I have been experimenting with how to share collections off-wiki. http://www.flickr.com/groups/wikimedia-commons is a Flickr group created for selected GLAM categories, each image linking back to its Wikimedia Commons source.

File:Part of Northfield. NYPL1515717.tiff[edit]

Thank you for adjusting the Viele file (last topic).

This file also doesn't belong with the ID, NYPL 1515717.

Thanks for your help!. Vzeebjtf (talk) 20:42, 29 December 2014 (UTC)

When I looked at the last case, I did notice the file I was uploading as a replacement also exists on Commons under the wrong filename. I'm unsure what the cause was, possible lags in file uploads may have caused some sort of interative issue. If you find more cases, please list them here. My volunteer time is limited over the next couple of weeks, and I have a number of things put on my backlog already, so I would rather let some cases build up and then schodule time to investigate this properly, rather than fix odd cases. Thanks for raising this for attention. -- (talk) 21:06, 29 December 2014 (UTC)

Faebot[edit]

Hi. I've veen adding categories to some pics, and I found that Faebot added categories but files still remains with {{uncategorized}} included. Is there any way to remove this template? See for example: [1]. Thanks. --Ganímedes (talk) 14:05, 29 November 2014 (UTC)

I believe the template removes itself as soon as you add categories. If there is an example where this failed, give me a link and I'll take a look. :-) -- (talk) 15:44, 29 November 2014 (UTC)
I can give you several, there is a long list of media with this problem. See for example:

...

Choose random. I also thought it was automatic, but apparently not always works. Thanks. --Ganímedes (talk) 22:00, 29 November 2014 (UTC)

Hi. Could you check this? There are thousands of pictures whit cats and not-cat advices. Nor maybe you can tell me someone else to talk about this? Thanks. --Ganímedes (talk) 10:01, 4 December 2014 (UTC)
What I can do is have a housekeeping run through of specific projects, like Geograph, and check for those with 2 or more visible categories with the nocat template and pull it out. <off topic trim>
@Ganímedes: I have started Faebot looking at Geograph images for the template {{Uncategorized-Geograph}} and where there are 2 or more visible categories which are do not match any of 'Geograph|Photos by|Images by|Files by|Photographs by|Taken with'. If this is met, then the uncat template gets removed.
Faebot's previous work to add Counties/Unitary Authorities has resulted in many Geograph photos having single meaningful categories such as Shropshire, Hampshire, Aberdeenshire, Lancashire (plucking these from a terminal window), but I hope you agree that if this is the only category, then a human review probably is still needed. Unfortunately this is likely to be a very small fraction of the Geograph images; in fact Faebot has just looked at the first 1,100 images and found no matches yet, it could be because it is doing these in date order, or that prior housekeeping was okay...
Update, two good examples are File:Upside-down sign at Imber Range - geograph.org.uk - 537230.jpg and File:Wayford Manor Gardens - geograph.org.uk - 513255.jpg. The 'hit rate' seems fewer than 0.1% so far. -- (talk) 14:59, 24 January 2015 (UTC)

IWM[edit]

Hello Fæ. I have just noticed that you have an experience with uploading IWM's collections. I'd be grateful if you could clarify whether the files such as this authored by an unnamed German photographer from the German WW1 Official Exchange Collection can be uploaded to Commons. The IWM states that "This item is available to share and reuse under the terms of the IWM Non Commercial Licence." Best regards, --Kober (talk) 12:59, 17 April 2015 (UTC)

@Kober: You can find a background to my uploads at User:Fæ/email/IWM. IWM's NC licence does not override existing copyright (there is a caveat in it to that effect). Where the IWM has archives of seized WWI photographs, these were considered public domain in the UK (or rather, Crown property) due to national laws on seized war property, however this does not apply if being used in Germany or the USA (both are relevant for Commons hosting a German photograph). There have been cases where uploads of originally German artworks from WWI sourced from the IWM, have been deleted from Commons due to the estates of the original artists having a potential claim (albeit highly unlikely).
However, as in this case the photographer appears unknown (unnamed), then the standard European 70 year rule applies and these can be considered Public Domain as copyright has expired. This might be challenged, however I would say let it be challenged after upload and see if anyone can shine more light on the original photographer, or if there is any possible expectation that German records could be researched to discover the information.
By the way, if you have not uploaded IWM images before, please adopt the templates you can see in use on other images, it can save some hassle. Take a look at User:Fæ/IWM. -- (talk) 15:41, 17 April 2015 (UTC)
Thanks a lot, Fæ. I also think that anonymous German photos can be considered PD.--Kober (talk) 16:42, 17 April 2015 (UTC)

Possible flickrwashing[edit]

Hi Fæ. You mentioned a bot for flickr washing detection. I happened upon File:William Monahan Franco Nero.jpg when processing a completely unrelated OTRS ticket. The EXIF data says "@PIETRO COCCIA GRANATA IMAGES". The image description (which is now gone from flickr, but presumably is where our description was copied from) says "photo taken by Italian photographer Pietro Coccia". (Pietro Coccia is an Italian celebrity photographer.) Regrettably, the Flickr user's name is not Pietro Coccia. From looking at the Flickr user's photostream - https://www.flickr.com/photos/filmfestivals/ - they are from such a diversity of sources (including lots of TV screenshots) and all sorts of stuff obviously not created by this person. From googling, a small handful of his images have been brought here. Is there a procedure to go through to add this flickr account to the ones the bots will block from being uploaded? --UserB (talk) 01:11, 18 April 2015 (UTC)
