Dear Ilmari Karonen. I am writing 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 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.
- Thanks for the notice. Given that this is my second warning, and that I really haven't been active on Commons in the mean time, I've decided to resign my adminship. If I ever decide to become more active here again, I'll just re-apply. --Ilmari Karonen (talk) 11:51, 4 March 2013 (UTC)
I'd like to stop pseudo-manually updating my report User:Dispenser/Wrong Extension and you're bot has an overlapping report. These changes needed for assimilation
- The runtime can be shorten by using a temporary table and reusing it for both reports
- .oga and .ogv should only dedicated to img_media_type AUDIO and VIDEO respectively
- .xcf is a supported format on Common
- Related discussion at Commons:Bots/Work requests/Archive 7#Fix file extensions
- We could perhaps combine these tools in a multi-maintainer project; I actually applied for one for MIMEStatBot some time ago, but never got around to moving the code over. (Not sure if that would make sense given the current status of the Toolserver, though; I haven't been really following that stuff very closely, but I know there at least used to be a lot of talk about transitioning to the WMF Tool Labs in the future.)
- I deliberately wrote MIMEStatBot to be fairly policy-agnostic: it doesn't really know or care which MIME types are allowed on Commons, it just counts them all and then compiles a list of any files with unusual types, where "unusual" is defined by an arbitrary cutoff of 500 files or fewer. It also doesn't currently care about file extensions at all, although that could indeed be changed fairly easily.
- I suppose it would be possible to add a simple configuration file that defines any "expected" MIME type / media type / extension combinations, and have the bot report anything not found in it. That file would need to be update whenever Commons policy (or technical restrictions) on file formats changes, but that's not really too frequent. (I think that major changes over the lifetime of MIMEStatBot have been the introduction of the .djvu and .webm formats.)
- Anyway, a big problem with MIMEStatBot is that it's already pushing the Toolserver query runtime limits pretty hard; yesterday's run got killed before it managed to complete. In theory, it should be possible to rewrite the code to maintain running statistics and update them based on upload and deletion logs, but in practice that would likely get out of sync with reality pretty quickly. (For example, purging a file can change its MIME type if the detection code has changed in the mean time, and leaves no trace in the logs; also, MediaWiki's logging works on a best effort basis, and while it's rare, it's quite possible for a file to get uploaded or deleted without leaving a log entry.) Any plans to add functionality would need to take into account the fact that even the existing functionality barely works any more. :(
End of last archive; please
it is with a regret that I inform you that, following our de-adminship policy, you had your administrator rights on Wikimedia Commons removed today by a Wikimedia steward.
I would like to use this opportunity to thank you for your efforts and contributions in making Wikimedia Commons what it is today (no big words intended!). If you'll feel like doing so at some point, please feel free to re-apply for adminship at COM:RFA. Again, thanks for all the help you gave us, and (hopefully) see you back soon! odder (talk) 19:48, 14 March 2013 (UTC)
- Hi Ilmari, thanks for your great, persevering work, especiall in the scripting area. I hope, one day, I could support a you in your re-application for adminship. Best -- Rillke(q?) 23:08, 14 March 2013 (UTC)
