"It am de stuff" - showing how times change.
20 November 2014 Due to family matters, I'm going to be mostly on a wikibreak until late November. I will be continuing to run my upload projects, but if you have something to raise it may be better done after this time out. (talk)

Please be patient as I might be off the net or need to stay focused on other matters, and would find it tricky to keep an eye on messages. I normally reply within a day and I will be notified by email if this page changes.
If you wish to contact me about something other than Wikimedia Commons, or any matter of a confidential or private nature (such as an OTRS ticket or LGBT+ related business), or would like to nudge me about something I've forgotten to do, please use this link to email me.

Shortly after Wikimedia UK refused my membership of the UK charity (I am the only person this has ever happened to), I have been kicked out of OTRS as a volunteer with no clear reason other than no longer being a member of my local chapter. Consequently I am now unable to help others on Commons with OTRS tickets. I started helping with OTRS in 2010 and understand it well, helping to lead a training workshop in 2012, which has since turned out to be the only 'official' workshop for volunteers. Should anyone want advice on the nature of liability, or how it is neither a secure nor confidential system, I would be happy to advise based on my experience as a volunteer over the last 4 years.

Can you pls check my file[edit]

Its a basic grey green map that I downloaded, cropped and uploaded again.

File:Middle East cropped (orthographic projection).png

Could you check licence as I've had files deleted before. Thanks

Gregkaye (talk) 00:49, 14 November 2014 (UTC)

I have gone ahead and amended the information box. There is no need to include the whole information box from the source file, and the original CC-BY-SA license means that a simple crop would have to at a minimum ensure that CC-BY-SA was preserved, so a minimal derivative like this probably cannot be released as FAL as it would undermine the original legal requirement for attribution to persist in derivatives. Feel free to gain another opinion or raise it on the copyright noticeboard if you would like other opinions. -- (talk) 15:21, 18 November 2014 (UTC)

More incomplete HAER files[edit]

Non-urgent: some more HAER files that were cut off mid-upload; I guess you need to rerun it with chunked uploads like you did with User_talk:Fæ/2014#Incomplete HAER files:

Mixed in were other files that were successfully completed. --Closeapple (talk) 00:58, 15 November 2014 (UTC)

Thanks for the list, it may take me a while though Smile fasdfdsfoiueire.svg. In the long term I would like a way of auto-detecting these without having to do something terribly inefficient (like downloading the original to create a sha1). A brief discussion at the NL hackerthon this weekend showed that most tech folks don't know any more than me on this. It may be that manual visual checks are the only way... -- (talk) 07:01, 17 November 2014 (UTC)
API query for the first two files. (Documentation for api.php?prop=imageinfo) That gives you size (in bytes), uploader, and sha1 right off the wiki database for each version of the file. (The sha1 is for the actual data, not the filename hash; I tested it.) You may not even need to run SHA1 on your source files: As far as I can remember, all the bad files have been simple early upload termination; filesize checks are "inexpensive", and if the wiki filesize is different than your source filesize, you've caught one, and if the latest uploader is you, you know nobody's superseded you. If the filesizes match and you're still looking for a second check to make sure the file wasn't corrupted, I can think of another inexpensive check (without requiring a full SHA1 hash on your source file): HTTP/1.1 byte serving (partial content) should allow you to grab just the last part of a wiki file without downloading the whole thing, and you could just compare that last part to make sure it matched. (I don't know if a badly-implemented chunked uploading function could result in missing/zeroed data in the middle of the file though.) --Closeapple (talk) 22:33, 17 November 2014 (UTC)
