as of 18 February 2010


Lupo hi.

for some inexplicable reason, in the hebrew translation, the "engine_names" happen to be in Greek, which is, as they say, Greek to me.

could you please change the translation as here?

if (window.HotCat) $.extend(window.HotCat.engine_names, {
    searchindex : 'חיפוש'
   ,pagelist    : 'רשימת דפים'
   ,combined    : 'חיפוש מורכב'
   ,subcat      : 'תת קטגוריות'
   ,parentcat   : 'קטגוריות אב'

(not that i understand what is the difference between "search" and "combined", or why is it good to have "pagelist" in this gadget)...

while you are at it, you might want to change

 HotCat.multi_tooltip = 'עריכת מספר קטגוריות';


HotCat.messages.multi_error =  'למרבה הצער ארעה תקלה, והשינויים שביצעת לא נשמרו. אתך הסליחה.';

thanks a bunch, peace - קיפודנחש (talk) 23:06, 21 April 2014 (UTC)

No idea why there was Greek text there. Might have been a copy-paste error. Nor do I know why nobody noticed that for so long. ✓ Done now. Thanks a lot for your help! Lupo 06:04, 22 April 2014 (UTC)

Discussion at enwiki Village Pump[edit]

There's a discussion at en:Wikipedia:Village pump (technical)#Section links not working properly that would benefit from your contribution. It looks like there might be a conflict between HotCat at en:Wikipedia:WikEd which is causing some unusual behaviour when section links are clicked on. Thanks. Nthep (talk) 20:07, 9 May 2014 (UTC)

Thanks for the pointer; I've replied there. Lupo 22:02, 9 May 2014 (UTC)


I'm new and so I must apologise about the copyrighted images. I'm confused as the images I've used are from Flickr, and the individual has given consent for the image to be used by others as long as he's mentioned which I have done. So can you give me some help and info and why what I have done is a "copyright violation"? And the image: " File:Police Scotland Mounted Branch in Tayside.jpg," I would like deleted. I got the location mixed up (Dundee and not Tayside), and tried to reupload but wouldn't let me and I don't know how to delete the image myself.

I've replied at your talk page. Lupo 12:12, 12 May 2014 (UTC)


Kudos to you for your work on spotting copyright violations. Best regards Hekerui (talk) 19:36, 14 May 2014 (UTC)

Thanks. It's like trying to empty a bathtub using a thimble while the faucet is running. Luckily there are some others keeping an eye out, too. How'd you notice? Lupo 19:43, 14 May 2014 (UTC)
I went over files marked as copyright violations and you gave links that name the actual photographers and agencies, and are not some blog post, which made it easy. Often, one has to do a whole other search to clarify whether an image is indeed a copyvio or not. Best regards Hekerui (talk) 09:09, 16 May 2014 (UTC)
Yes, I try to give good source links that do credit the photo to someone since I know myself how much work actual deletion can be if one takes the trouble to actually follow the given links and is trying to figure out whether the report is valid. Not always possible, though, so sometimes I have to settle for a blog post, too. Blog posts are good, too, if they pre-date the upload here; that at least shows that the image was available elsewhere before the upload. Basically, if something is available on the Internet anywhere shortly after the upload, my first assumption is copyvio. Sometimes, if user names indicate some affiliation with the source found, I go for "no permission" instead. Lupo 09:17, 16 May 2014 (UTC)
You're right of course, I do the same thing. But you gave really good links when you could, hence my thanks :) Hekerui (talk) 09:48, 16 May 2014 (UTC)


Hi, you left a message on my talk page re: copyright violation. I only cropped the original image after a request to do so on my talk page. I actually don't think the image is a decent enough quality even in it's original form ... Sagaciousphil (talk) 15:58, 18 May 2014 (UTC)

Yeah, I noticed so a little later. Original image is now also tagged. Lupo 15:59, 18 May 2014 (UTC)
I never looked when I cropped it but after receiving your notice I looked in more depth - it does seem the link you gave was uploaded by the same user? If possible I would ask if you would consider removing the template from my talk page as I had acted in good faith and literally just cropped an image that was already on Commons, uploaded by someone I have no knowledge of whatsoever, so I don't feel it's justified for me to be branded as guilty of copyright violation. Sagaciousphil (talk) 16:07, 18 May 2014 (UTC)
As you are an Admin, please rev/del the notice from my talk page as I do not wish it to appear in the history of my talk page. I was not guilty of a copyright violation. Thanks. Sagaciousphil (talk) 16:38, 18 May 2014 (UTC)
That would leave nonsense in the history. It's not a stigma. Just archive it, or simply delete the whole section, and be done with it. Lupo 16:49, 18 May 2014 (UTC)
Lupo, well, I'm afraid I respectfully disagree - you have incorrectly accused me of copy violation and anyone checking my talk page/archive will think I do not understand copyright. Please rev/del it. Sagaciousphil (talk) 16:57, 18 May 2014 (UTC)
Lupo, will you not at least have the curtesy of clearly indicating on my talk page that you have been mistaken in your inappropriate and inaccurate accusations? Sagaciousphil (talk) 18:57, 18 May 2014 (UTC)
Please note further comment on my talk page. Thanks. Sagaciousphil (talk) 20:27, 18 May 2014 (UTC)
For me, this is closed. I won't make any further comment on this. Lupo 20:33, 18 May 2014 (UTC)
Take it easy. Hekerui (talk) 11:44, 19 May 2014 (UTC)
The posting of that video link is not only offensive but childish; certainly not the behaviour anyone would expect from Administrators. Lupo simply had to remove the erroneous template with a sincere apology once their blatant mistake was pointed out to them. Sagaciousphil (talk) 12:56, 19 May 2014 (UTC)


Hi Lupo, I saw your warning on User talk:Aytugg. He repeated viol. Thank you.--Ayrıntılı Bilgi (talk) 19:44, 28 May 2014 (UTC)

Thanks for the notice. Since he drops by infrequently, I've given him a 2 week timeout. Lupo 20:31, 28 May 2014 (UTC)

Commons:Deletion requests/Files on User:Martin H./World War I posters in the Library of Congress for jpg file matches to "Rehse-Archiv"[edit]

Ich rufe dich als Kenner des Urheberrechts an. Kannst du bitte hier einen Blick drauf werfen und eingreifen, falls meine Interpretation grundlegend falsch sein sollte? Anliegen ist die Löschung von Dateien deren Urheberrecht im Ursprungsland noch nicht abgelaufen ist und die - obgleich in einem Massenupload enthalten - auf Commons nicht hätten hochgeladen werden sollen. Ich weiß, auf Commons wird die Interpretation von Recht gerne als demokratischer Prozess misverstanden, weswegen diese Bitte als Falsch interpretiert werden könnte. --Martin H. (talk) 15:27, 3 June 2014 (UTC)

Ich denke, Du hast vollkommen recht. Habe dort mein {{vd}} hinterlassen. Lupo 15:50, 3 June 2014 (UTC)

Hi there! Please excuse my writing in English; I do not speak your language. The block expired on 17:52, 11 June 2014 (UTC). Since you could edit my talk page and leave me the above message, you're clearly not blocked anymore. If, as you write, there is no way to select a license for a mobile upload, then only upload photos that you have taken yourself. Do not upload screenshots or photographs of other photos, of posters, of DVD covers, of TV screens, or of similar things -- those are copyrighted. Also do not upload images taken from other websites. The only other help I can offer is the image at the right. Lupo 21:04, 12 June 2014 (UTC)

Missing messages at Translatewiki?[edit]

There are some system messages at Commons in English that I would like to translate into Croatian, but I can't find them at Translatewiki. For example, tabs "global usage", "find categories", "move", then "request rotation" and "ZoomViewer: flash/no flash". Where are really these messages, am I missing something?--MaCroatian squares Ljubicic.gifGa 11:59, 16 June 2014 (UTC)

These probably come from gadgets. You'd have to look in the respective gadgets how they can be localized. For instance, MediaWiki:Gadget-ZoomViewer.js doesn't look like it could be localized out of the box, the strings are hardcoded. You'll have to prod the people who wrote these gadgets. Lupo 14:12, 16 June 2014 (UTC)
OK, thanks.--MaCroatian squares Ljubicic.gifGa 18:05, 19 June 2014 (UTC)

~ Nahid Talk 18:01, 19 June 2014 (UTC)

Uhm, I've never found out how to use translatewiki for Javascript. I'm eitehr not looking hard enough, or the documentation is well hidden / not existent. --Dschwen (talk) 18:54, 19 June 2014 (UTC)


Hi, just see a pic.It says in Tr "This penis belong 12 years old". I guess it is violation. File:12 yaşindaki bir cocugun penisi 2014-06-24 20-21.jpg -Conversation could be awkward sorry---Ayrıntılı Bilgi (talk) 18:30, 24 June 2014 (UTC)

Did you? or another one . I dont know. It was sth like "Ultimate deletion". Who ever did, thank you.--Ayrıntılı Bilgi (talk) 19:05, 24 June 2014 (UTC)
No, that was somebody else. Indeed an ultimate deletion. Actually, I wonder how one does that. Maybe first hide all revisions, then delete the page? Or maybe through the API... Lupo 20:44, 24 June 2014 (UTC)
